To start you need to pick out your Queso. The cheese is the second most important ingredient in this recipe so it’s key to get it right. You can also use a vegan cheese alternative if you prefer. Our favorite combo is half Monterey Jack & half mozzarella Next you’ll need some Mi Tierra Tortillas and a little oil for the pan. That’s it! Only 3 Ingredients for the basics, you can always get fancy with salsa & toppings.
Fun Fact: Did you know the word quesadilla comes from the words Queso & Tortilla? Queso + Tortilla = Quesadilla
Heat the pan up to medium temperature. Simply add the tortillas to the pan and flip twice with a little oil if it’s not a non-stick pan. From there you can add your desired amount of cheese. You can either fold the centers together, place two on top of each other, or eat like mini cheese tacos. There is no wrong way to eat a quesadilla!
5 minutes is all it should take to melt most cheese on medium heat, you can keep going if you like them extra crispy.
Add your favorite toppings or dippers like salsa, guacamole, crema or anything else. Although don’t worry they taste great by themselves too!
