Serves: 8
Total Calories: 234


1 1/4 cups Monterey Jack cheese, coarsely grated or white cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 scallion, both white and green parts, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 tomato, flame-roasted (recipe follows), seeded and finely diced
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, fresh
2 to 3 jalapeno chiles, , pickled, thinly sliced (see Note)
1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
8 flour tortillas (8 inches each)


1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.

2. Combine the cheese, sour cream, scallions, tomato, cilantro, chiles, and cumin in a small bowl and stir to mix. Add salt and pepper.

3. When ready to cook, lay 4 tortillas out on your work surface and spread them evenly with the cheese mixture. Press the remaining tortillas on top to make a sandwich. Place on the hot grill grate and grill until lightly browned on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes per side, turning carefully with a large spatula. Cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges for serving.

Makes 48 wedges: serves 8 to 12 as an appetizer, 4 as a light entrée

Note: For spicier quesadillas, use thinly sliced fresh jalapeños, with or without the seeds, as desired.
