Quesadilla is a Mexican dish which is nothing but a toasted tortilla with melted cheese inside. “Queso” means “little cheesy” in Spanish. In addition to cheese, you can stuff anything in a quesadilla. You can add onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, any vegetables, paneer etc. The ingredients can be sautéed before stuffing or can be added without cooking. It purely depends on individual taste. You can even add some spices to suit to your taste.
- Tortillas 4 large
- Grated cheese 1 cup
- Olive oil/butter 2 tbsp
- Rajma beans 1 cup
- Onion 1 large chopped
- Bell peppers ½ cup chopped
- Sauce or salsa 2 tbsp
- Sauté all the stuffing ingredients of your choice with little salt, pepper and salsa and keep aside.
- Heat a large griddle to medium heat. Add 1/2 tsp of oil/butter and spread it.
- Place a tortilla in the pan. Flip the tortilla over a few times until it is nicely warmed and small bubbles are formed.
