Today I decided to make Quesadillas for dinner and realized I’ve kept this yummy idea from you for too long now.
Every time I make this… I love the results, especially if I leave it in the fridge overnight to let all the flavors soak into the cheese. I came up with this idea several months ago while making dinner for my family and some friends.
Now, let me explain something, I really enjoy quesadillas… I do, but I don’t enjoy how the veggies and cheese would often fall out or get pulled out when I am taking a bite. That night, while I was thinking about that and working on a huge block of fresh raw cheese, a great idea popped up in my head…
Delicious Cheese MixtureBy Marillyn Beard
- Big blocks of fresh cheese (your choice)
- Fresh cilantro
- Bell Peppers
- Jalapenos (opional)
- LOTS of fresh garlic, minced
- Dried or fresh oregano
- Black pepper
- Sea salt
- Dried chile peppers (optional)
- Ground cooked beef or chicken (optional)Grate your choice of cheeses (I love white cheddar and mozzarella together). Finely chop all the veggies and cilantro into small pieces. Mix in with the cheese (adjust according to your tastes… I like a even amount of everything, but sometimes add extra tomatoes). Add a big scoop of dried or fresh chopped oregano (I use about 1-2 Tbsp.). Grind in fresh pepper to taste and add sea salt if needed (I don’t usually need to because the cheese already supplies the salt). If I don’t have jalapenos… I like to add dried chile peppers for a spicy flavor.Mix everything together well and either… 1) use it right away OR for the BEST results… 2) put in a sealed container and let it sit in your fridge overnight. Proceed to top your flour tortillas, fold over and toast both sides on a hot, oiled pan. Enjoy with fresh avocado, lime and salsa.
