I’m Hilah, and today on Hilah Cooking we’re going to have a quesadilla three way y’all! It’s a quesadilla party except I’m the only one that’s coming! Just kidding, uhm, I’m gonna show y’all how to make three different quesadillas, hopefully it’ll give you some new ideas. And, you know, quesadillas are a great snack for breakfast even, lunch, dinner, whatever, coming home drunk, waking up hungover.
I dare say they’re a little bit easier than grilled cheese ever! So lets get started! The three types we’re going to do today are: a sweet potato, a brisket and pico de gallo, and I’ve got a roasted chicken and some black beans here- and I’ve got a little bit of some pepper jack and some cheddar. You can use whatever kind of cheese you want. Alright, so I’ve got a little cheese there. I know this is really simple, but I got such a reaction with the grilled cheese, I thought y’all might like to see some different things to do with quesadillas too, because it is such a quick, little meal, that you can put together.
Okay, so, I’ve got some sweet potato. I just microwaved this and scooped it out and mashed it up with just a little bit of butter and salt, this is a good one for vegetarian, just to add a little bit more than just plain old cheese in there. And then this is some brisket that I cooked in the oven, and a little bit of pico de gallo. I have this recipe on my website too. For this last one we’ll do some chicken and black beans, also like, some corn would be really good in here. And just like when you’re doing a filled grilled cheese sandwich, it’s a good idea to put a little bit more cheese on top of the filling.
You don’t need as much as you put on the bottom half, but just a little bit so you get a little “cheese glue” action happening. And now I’m going to fold these over and just put them on the grill. another way you could do it is to sandwich two, whole, round tortillas together but, I find that this little half-moon shape is a lot easier to manage, it’s a lot easier to flip over. Okay, and I’ve just got this, uhm, grill pan here, heating up over kind of a medium heat.
You could use any kind of griddle or skillet that you have. Let it go over a medium heat until it’s toasted, the cheese is melted, and we’ll flip them over. Okay, so, about two or three minutes later you can open them up and see the bottom layer of cheese is nice and melty and we can go ahead and flip them, and there we go, and just a couple other minutes on that side. Okay, so once the cheese is all melted, I turned the heat up for thirty second.
I turned it up to like, medium high, just to make sure that tortilla down there gets super toasty, and ready to serve, just about. It’s a good idea to let them cool, just for a moment, before you slice them up, just so you don’t end up with molten cheese all over your hands, and it burns and sticks to your hands, and your fingers fall off not that that has ever happened in real life. Okay so we’ll just (blowing noise) for a little bit and cut them up in just a sec. Sharp knife, pizza cutter, and I should tell you too, if you want to make up a bunch of these for a party, you can totally just, before you cut them up, put them in the oven on a cookie sheet at like, 250 degrees, and they’ll stay nice and warm, and felt for you, until you’re ready to serve. So, look at that! So we got some chicken, some black beans in there, with some cheddar cheese, or some salsa.
Man, it’s like, the simplest things are the most delicious things. Wow, that’s great, it’s totally just like, a meal in and of itself. Alright, well there’s some fun quesadilla ideas to try, let me know if you come up with any more brilliant filling ideas, I’d love to hear them.
