MEXICAN FEAST (QUESADILLA)


' Queso' is cheese in spanish. Quesadilla is toasted tortilla with melted cheese inside. With cheese we can put any kind of stuffing inside. Here I have put Bell peppers, onion and mushroom. Stuffing can be made according to our choice and combination. And regarding cheese again its our choice. We love sharp cheddar and mozzeralla so I have added both. It is served with sour cream, salsa and guacamole. Since I made 3 types of salsa I am posting it with store bought tortilla chips. Enjoy this mexican platter !!!!!!!!!!



Ingredients :

Flour tortilla - 4
Bell pepper - 1 sliced thin
Onion - 1 thinly sliced
Mushroom sliced - 1/2 cup
Garlic powder - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - as required or chilli powder
Paprika + cummin powder - 1 tsp to sprinkle on top (optional)
Olive oil for roasting
Salt for taste
Sharp cheddar - 1/2 cup
Mozzeralla - 1/4 cup


Method :

1. Heat oil in the frying pan and add onion saute until light brown then to that add the mushroom.
2. When all the water oozes out and dried add bell pepper salt, garlic powder and pepper.
3. Saute until they are lightly browned.
4. Now heat olive oil in the pan put all the tortilla one by one and make it warm and keep it aside.
5. Now again put one tortilla in pan and add the topping mixture and cheese.
6. And cover it with other tortilla. The cheese melts and they will stick to each other.
7. Using spatula lift up with one side of quesadilla and flip over other side very carefully.
8. Do this every 3 minutes in low flame until they are browned and crispy on both sides or quesadilla.
9. Once it is done remove from pan before it is cooled cut them using pizza cutter and serve hot sprinkling with paprika and cummin powder.
10. Enjoy with salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
11. Now get ready to make another quesadilla with remaining wraps and stuffing.

Hot and spicy tomato salsa :

Cilantro leaves - 1 tbsp
Garlic - 1 pod
Bell pepper red - 1/4 cup

Regarding chillies each of them will give different taste and if you do not have those particular chilli in your fridge use jalapeno for everything and adjust it according to your spice levels.
