These quesadillas are stuffed with two different kinds of cheeses that will satisfy all of your cheese filled cravings. These are so fast and easy to make. They’re baked on a baking sheet so you can make more if you’re feeding a crowd, or if you’re in the middle of binge watching your favorite streaming shows and you’ve got the munchies.
Remember the Ultimate Grilled Cheese I posted not too long ago? It was such a hit and we had some of the cheese left that I had used in making the grilled cheese, that I wanted to try it in quesadillas. Let’s talk about the cheese for a minute. I discovered some really tasty cheese at Trader Joe’s (I am not in any way affiliated with them, I just love a lot of their stuff….maybe a bit too much). I used the sliced Colby Jack cheese
and sliced cheddar cheese.
These melt beautifully and taste soooo good.
You don’t have to use this brand, but I do suggest getting a nice quality, but doesn’t have to be expensive, cheese. I will warn you that the cheese, once melted, will most likely ooze out of the sides, but fear not, once cooled a bit, these are delectable. I brushed on a little melted butter on both sides of the tortilla, baked them on a baking sheet until they are a little crispy around the edges, but sinfully soft and cheesy in the middle. Let’s just say hubby and I were eating these way past dinner time because we couldn’t stop ourselves.
Here’s what you need to make your own:
*8 inch flour tortillas; or larger if you prefer
*1 TBS melted butter
*sliced Colby Jack cheese; I used Trader Joe’s brand
*sliced cheddar cheese; I used Trader Joe’s New Zealand organic
Preheat oven to 425°.
Brush one side of the tortillas with the melted butter than lay the tortillas butter side down onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Make sure you save enough tortillas to go over the top of the quesadillas.
Place one slice of the cheddar cheese over each tortilla.
Place a slice of the Colby Jack cheese over the cheddar.
Lay another tortilla over the cheese and brush with melted butter.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden and the cheese is melted.
Cool slightly if the cheese has ran out of the sides and serve.
