Grillin’ some Quesadillas

Grillin some Quesadillas
Now the best thing about these quesadillas is that you may be as creative as wish to be. The easiest way to start is check out the fridge to see what you may have for leftovers ie: chicken, beef, turkey, pork etc. The sky’s the limit. Or for that matter go to your local supermarket and buy some Smoked Salmon Trim. The good thing is you can fire up the grill, prep everything inside and cook these in a matter of 10 minutes and your done. So if you’re dealing with fading light or a very cool evening you can do this pretty quickly. OK, Lets get started!

For me I’m using 1/2# of smoked turkey breast, I smoked the other day.

1/2 # meat sliced thin
1 medium size onion – fine dice
1 # fancy shredded cheddar cheese (very fine shred)
2 oz herbed goat cheese
1 cup black olives sliced thin
1/2 cup diced green chilies
Creepin Quag™ to taste

Brush one side of each tortilla with olive oil
Place tortilla greased side down onto a cookie or baking sheet
Top each tortilla with a thin layer of cheese, several small pieces of the goat cheese, meat, onion, olives and chilies.
Shake onto each quesadilla Creepin Quag Hot Sauce
Now we need to grill em!
Having preheated your gas grill turning heat to low temp or if using coals make sure you have let the coals turn to a thick layer of ash so as to have a low temperature.
Place quesadillas greased side down onto grill. Close your lid.
If the heat is too high you will burn the tortilla before your cheese has melted.
Cook for about 5- 8 minutes until cheese has melted.
Fold tortilla in half to make a 1/2 moon shape and remove from grill.
Slice quesadilla into 1/3 rds and serve with lime – cilantro sour cream.
Remember if the heat is too high in your grill you will over cook the tortilla before the cheese melts.
Also you will not be able to fold in half, the tortilla will break and crumble. Also if you like smokey you may soak some wood chips, place into a foil pan prior to cooking your Quesadillas, turn heat to high on your grill.
As soon as the chips begin smoking, turn down the heat, then begin cooking your quesadillas
