One of my favorite snacks is the quesadilla. It’s simple and makes for a wonderful snack. I make it a point to have some tortillas on hand for this purpose. During the week I’ll often make sandwiches using a ratio of 3 cold cuts to every 1 slice of cheese. The result is always leftover cheese, my favorite of which is Swiss. It’s not the typical cheese found in Mexican (Oaxaca) or American quesadillas (Cheddar, Monterrey Jack, Colby). Out of necessity, I came up with the Swiss quesadilla, which as it turns out is very tasty, and done in 5 minutes.
The recipe is simple:
-Two Corn Tortillas
-3 slices of Swiss cheese (or more, depending on how cheesy you like it)
Heat a small frying pan to medium. Add a little oil. Once the pan is heated, place one tortilla down on the pan. On top, add your cheese. Top it with the other tortilla. Cook each side for around 2-3 minutes until browned a tiny bit (you cook longer to crisp). The less oil you use, the more browned it will get. Quarter the Swiss quesadilla with a knife. Eat with ketchup. I know it’s strange to eat with ketchup but the contrast works nicely.
