Quesadillas are quick and easy to make, satisfyingly filled with melted cheese and perfect for a snack or lunch. There are lots of ways to enjoy Quesadillas, filled with pulled pork, fajitas, or chicken are just a few. But our favourite way has to be this east Quesadilla Recipe, Gran Luchito Style. If you were looking for a simple recipe to nail the perfect quesadilla, this is it!
All you need to do is to cook the chorizo and onion in a bit of cooking oil. Fry gently, letting the onion get lovely and soft while the chorizo releases all the flavour, then finish them up with a teaspoon of Chipotle Honey to crisp them up slightly. Then fill Street Taco wraps with a mix of cheeses. We think gruyere and cheddar work beautifully for flavour and melt. Then add a spoonful of crispy onions and chorizo mixture, fold in half and place them over a hot pan.
It is not necessary to add any oil to the pan, just let the heat do its magic and the cheese melt over a medium heat. Once the gooey cheese begins to come out of the edges you know your quesadilla is ready, make sure you toast them until golden brown on both sides, serve warm.We like to add a dollop of Tomatillo Salsa for a zingy finish.
