How to Make Cheese quesadilla

  • For salsa: Add the onions, jalapeno and garlic to the food processor and run it until the onions are chopped finely. Then add cilantro, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, salt and pulse.
  • Now add the diced tomatoes and pulse it to the required consistency (chunky or smooth).
  • Salsa is ready. Transfer it to a container and refrigerate it overnight or at least for a couple of hours for all the flavours to combine. Serve with chips or as a side for burritos or enchiladas.
  • For quesadillas: Prepare the salsa as per the recipe and refrigerate it until it is ready to be served.
  • Heat the pan and spray some oil. Now place a tortilla on the pan and heat it until light brown spots appear.
  • Now flip the tortilla and fill one half of it with 1/4th cup of cheese.
  • Fold the tortilla over (makes a semi-circle) and then press it down with a spatula.
  • You will notice that the cheese starts to melt. Flip the tortilla over and cook the other side too.
  • Now using a pizza cutter cut the quesadilla into 4 strips. Repeat the same with the rest of the tortillas.
