Cheese And Garlic Quesadillas


Inspired by Mexicali’s cheese and garlic quesadillas, I did my own version today. Simple, extremely easy to make and downright scrumptious, I tell you, this better be a staple meryenda in your homes soon. Ingredients are all but three of them– 6 tortilla breads, 1 box of quick-melting cheese and 1 head of garlic, finely minced.

On one totilla bread, sprinkle cheese for filling plus 1 tsp of garlic. Cover with another tortilla (sandwich style). Lightly heat both sides of bread with the filling inside using a Teflon pan (about 1 minute per side). You may opt to grill the tortillas with the filling if you wish. DON’T overcook or the bread would come out crunchy, toasted and flaky.

Cut in wedges and serve with sour cream (1/2 cup heavy cream, 3 tbsps lemon juice , salt and pepper to taste then mix everything together).

  1. What timing! I have a pack of tortilla wraps and have been dreaming of cheese and garlic quesadillas…hmm…serendipity… Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Hi Caren – this is one of the our fav ’emergency snacks’ at home. When I’m late cooking and I need to serve something to my husband to stave off his hunger, I make a couple of these to tide him over 🙂
