Quesadilla Time!

My Sister and her husband are teaching English in South Korea this year and they have a really cool apartment but... no oven! They have been making all their dinners in a toaster oven which basically means they can only cook things you can toast lol. Here is my tribute to Quesadillas just for them. For Christmas I got this awesome cook book that has 700 recipes! and it has about 15 Quesadilla flavours and how to make them. I've only tried the chicken, cheese and chilli one so here is the recipe and some other fillings they recommend.



Quesadilla with chicken, cheese & chilli:

Ingredients

For Quesadillas:
Salt
Hot sauce such as chipotle or Mexican green chili sauce to taste (1/2 teaspoon)
450g vine-ripened tomatoes (about 2 tomatoes)
60g unsalted butter
12 corn tortillas, preferably white
1 cup shredded cooked chicken (about 85g )
175g Cheddar, Monterey Jack or Colby cheese, thinly sliced

Lay 6 tortillas out and divide the cheese, hot sauce, tomatoes and chicken among the tortillas. (Its best to leave about an inch border on the edge of the tortilla uncovered to allow for the spread of the melting cheese.) Top with remaining tortillas and press gently to seal. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small pan or place on a plate.Cook turning once, until golden and little bubbles appear on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes in all. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Hola! Quesdillas!
