Fiesta Quesadillas With Simple Salsa And Holy Guacamole

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped yellow onion
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • Simple Salsa
  • Holy Guacamole


  • Place 1 tortilla on a flat work surface, cover it evenly with 1/4 cup of each of the cheeses, and top with 1 teaspoon of the chopped onion.
  • Cover with the second tortilla and rub 1/2 teaspoon of the oil onto the top tortilla.
  • Repeat this process with the remaining tortillasóyou will have four stuffed tortilla ìsandwichesî in all.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of the remaining oil to the pan and use a large turner to carefully transfer one of the stuffed tortillas to the hot pan, ungreased side down.
  • Cook until the bottom is just golden and the cheese is starting to melt, about 2 to 3 minutes. Gently turn with the turner and cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, until golden brown on the second side.
  • Using the turner, remove the quesadilla from the pan, place on a cutting board, and slice with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas and ingredients and serve immediately with about 2 tablespoons of Simple Salsa and a dollop of Holy Guacamole.
  • Be careful flipping your hot quesadilla and cutting the hot tortillaóhot cheese can stick!
