Party Quesadillas

Fill these quesadillas with anything you like, in any amount (as long as you don't overstuff the tortillas).

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 quesadilla)

Ingredients

  • 12 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 3 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese (about 12 ounces)
  • 6 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 6 thin scallions, finely chopped
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs for garnish, optional
  • Optional extras: roasted poblano peppers, shredded cooked chicken, salsa, guacamole, sour cream

Preparation

  1. 1. Prepare charcoal for grilling, heat a gas grill on medium, or heat a medium skillet or griddle over medium-high heat on the stove.
  2. 2. Grill tortillas (in batches), on one side, for 30 to 45 seconds; flip and top 6 of them with 1/2 cup cheese, 1 tablespoon cilantro, a chopped scallion, and any other toppings, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Top each tortilla with another, toasted sides down, to create the quesadillas. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes on each side, or until cheese is melted and tortilla is golden.
  3. 3. Remove the quesadillas to a cutting board, and cut each into 4 wedges.
  4. To Serve: Pile wedges on a platter, garnish with sprig of cilantro, and top with polbano, cooked chicken, mild salsa, guacamole, and sour cream if desired.
  5. How kids can help: Choose the fillings and garnish the platter.
