Quesadilla

BM # 31 Week 4 Day 2


Mexican Cuisine begins with tortillas and they use both flour and corn tortillas. Mexicans serve them for most of their meals in some or the other form.One could say that these tortillas are a base of most of their dishes.

Quesadillas contains a cheese filling,along with various peppers, beans , I have used flour tortillas and stuffed them with fresh corn kernels along with cheese and some herbs.I remember when my son was schooling, this was one of the most prepared recipe for his lunch box.


Tortillas
1 cup wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
4 tsp oil
Salt to taste
Mix the flours, oil and salt and bind a dough by adding warm water.
Knead to a semi soft dough and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough into 6" diameter thin rounds.
Cook lightly on a griddle.
This is the basic recipe that I normally follow, but this time I have used just wheat flour and it actually does not make much difference.

Stuffing
1 cup corn kernels, boiled
1/4 cup onion / spring onion
2 tbsp red capsicum
Olives, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup cheese
2 green chilly, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Oregano
Chilly flakes
Mix all ingredients for stuffing.
This stuffing is enough for 4 quesadillas.
Take a tortilla, place the stuffing on one side and fold the other half on it.
Cook on a griddle.
I toasted them in a sandwich grill.
Serve with salsa.
