Description

Kids 12 and older love making these savory tortilla sandwiches. Perfect for any party occasion, having a teenager man the skillet keeps the operation smooth---as each quesadilla is ready to cut into wedges, guests will be ready for more. These also make a perfect casual family supper.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup onions (diced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 jalapeno chilies (minced*)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 4 flour tortillas (10-inch)
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese (OR jack cheese, grated)

Directions

  1. In large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook pork with onion and garlic until browned; drain off any drippings and remove to large bowl. Stir cumin, oregano, jalapeno and cilantro into pork mixture. Wipe out skillet with paper towel and heat over medium-high heat. Place one tortilla in skillet; top with half of the pork mixture, spreading evenly, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of cheese. Top with another tortilla and cook on one side until nicely browned (about 2-3 minutes), pressing down occasionally on top tortilla (using a spatula or, carefully, your hand). Turn and brown the other side, remove to cutting board and cut into 8 wedges. Repeat process to make 8 more quesadilla wedges. Serve with salsa, if desired.
