If you are looking for 5 layers of quesadilla goodness or a meal inspired by Tex-Mex flavors, I have just the thing!  It’s called Quesadilla Pie.  It’s a savory dish comprised of 5 layers of tortillas with all the fillings.  When I asked Andrew to describe it, he said “it’s good.  It’s really good”, then proceeded to keep eating so that was all I got out of him 😊 It’s easy to make and very mild to accommodate any palette.  I wouldn’t consider it a spicy dish, but you can customize it to spice it up or spice it down. The recipe can be found here. I suggest using a springform pan to make this recipe.  If you don’t have one, you can use a pie pan or another round baking dish, but I think the springform pan helps to cut even slices and remove the slices without losing the filling.  A link to the pan I used can be … Continue reading

Elevate your next hotdog by smothering it with cheese and wrapping it in a tortilla before cooking.  Sounds good, right?  I give you the Quesadilladog!  It’s basically a Tex-Mex mashup of hotdogs, spicy nacho cheese, jalapenos, and warm tortillas.  It’s a great afterschool snack or can be served for lunch or dinner.  You can use any kind of hotdog – all beef franks, turkey franks, etc.  And any kind of nacho cheese – mild, spicy, etc.  I recommend fajita size tortillas because they work will with the length of the hotdogs.  You can also customize the dish if preferred.  Spread some refried beans on the tortilla, add some black beans before wrapping the hotdog, perhaps serve with salsa for dipping…you get the idea!  It’s a wonderful meal for picky kids or when your family can’t decide on one thing to have.  Simply combine 2 favorites (hotdogs and quesadillas) and you have a win. The recipe can be found here. Start by … Continue reading

Spooky Season is upon us!  Now that it’s after October 1, we can gear up for Halloween and all things spooky 😊 Halloween is a month-long celebration at my house.  We watch all the classic movies and anything new we can find, gorge ourselves on candy, and decorate with probably too many pumpkins.  But it’s fun and helps us get in the holiday spirit! I like to try new Halloween themed recipes every year too.  It’s fun to have themed treats for a movie viewing party or to simply enjoy throughout the week.  This year, I have 3 recipes to share with you: Halloween Pizza Dip Candy Corn Quesadilla Candy Corn Cupcakes   Halloween Pizza Dip is the perfect appetizer!  It’s loaded with cheese, pizza sauce, and pepperoni, and is enjoyed with soft pizza dough bites that are baked around the dip.  It’s served hot, right from the oven, and won’t last long 😊 It’s easy to make and comes together in … Continue reading

Chicken Cordon Bleu Quesadillas are a simplified version of the classic dish.  You still get the amazing layers of ham, cheese, chicken, and Dijon sauce but this time it’s sandwiched between 2 tortillas and cooked until crisp.  Think easy to assemble and fuss free! The recipe can be found here. Start by making the Dijon sauce.  Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.  Whisk in the flour.  Then, slowly pour in the milk while whisking.  Add the bouillon cube and continue to whisk until dissolved.  Add the mustard and stir to combine.  Let the mixture simmer for about 5-7 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the parmesan cheese.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Keep warm on the lowest burner setting while you prepare the quesadillas.  This stuff is good enough to drink! Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add one tortilla. Add one slice of cheese (or more if you like). Add 2-3 … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas are another way to enjoy a popular dish.  If I can find a way to eat buffalo chicken or find a way to make it into a new dish…. it’s going to happen.  And these quesadillas don’t disappoint!  They come together quickly, only take a few ingredients, and can be doubled or tripled if you need to feed a crowd. The recipe can be found here. Start by shredding or cubing the chicken.  I like to use rotisserie chicken because it’s tender and flavorful (and precooked), but you can easily bake your own chicken if you prefer.  Add the chicken to a mixing bowl and pour in the buffalo wing sauce.  Toss to coat.  You should also sample some, for quality assurance 😊 Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add one tortilla. Top with ¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese (use more or less to your taste). Completely optional, but you can also add a … Continue reading
