Quesadilla (Indian Style Grilled Cheese Sandwiches )

Our family loves these quesadillas. This is the way we used to make sandwiches with or without the cheese. I love that they have lots of flavorful veggies in addition to the tortillas and cheese to make a more complete meal. You can also use any kind of bread slices to make a grilled cheese sandwich the same way. Very quick and delicious! Makes 4.


1 large Roma Tomato
1 Mild green Chili
1 hot Jalapeño Chile (Optional)
1 small Red Onion
1 small bunch Cilantro (about 1/2 cup chopped)
1/4 tsp Salt

8 Bread slices, Corn tortillas, or Chapatis
4 oz. Grated Cheese, preferably Jack, or your favorite


Wash all the veggies well and chop finely. Mix with the salt. This amount is enough for 4 quesadillas or sandwiches.

Heat a skillet or griddle.

Divide the veggie mixture among 4 tortillas or bread slices and spread.

Sprinkle with one oz. of cheese on top of each. Cover with another piece of bread or tortilla.

Carefully place on the hot skillet/griddle, cover and cook on both sides until the cheese melts.

Remove from heat and put on a plate. Cut into 4 wedges with a knife or a pizza slicer.

Serve with Salsa I or Salsa II or Avocado Salsa. It is to live for :)!

For a more substantial meal serve with Simple Pinto Beans and a salad if you wish.
