Goat Cheese Quesadillas
Goat cheese quesadillas are quick and easy to make, and can serve several roles in a dinner, including appetizer, entree and dessert. They are also a great snack, and with a few instructions, are even easy enough for older children to make for themselves.
Recipes range from the simplest &mdash nothing but goat cheese warmed between two tortillas &mdash to fruit and vegetable fillings and heartier meat fillings.
To make any quesadilla, spread a thin layer (about 1/2 oz.) of goat cheese on one side of two tortillas. Lightly spray a heavy skillet or griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Place one tortilla, cheese side up, onto the skillet.
Place any fillings on top of the cheese. Then, place the other tortilla, cheese side down, on top of the fillings. When the bottom tortilla begins to crisp slightly, turn it over and let the other side warm.
Remove from the skillet and cut into 4-8 pieces with a pizza cutter.
Goat Cheese Quesadillas with Mango Salsa
This is my favorite quesadilla &mdash the sweet taste of mango contrasted with the sharp bite of fresh jalapeno, and aromatic cilantro to tie it all together!
This refreshing quesadilla makes a great appetizer, particularly for a Mexican dinner.
Mango Salsa Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup finely diced mango
- 1/2 cup finely diced tomato
- 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 Tbsp. chopped green onion
- 1 Tbsp. finely diced fresh jalapeno pepper
- 1 Tbsp. finely diced bell pepper
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 8 - 6" tortillas
- 4 oz. chevre soft goat cheese
Mix all salsa ingredients in a bowl. Spread 1/2 oz. of goat cheese on each tortilla. Place about 1/4 cup of salsa in each quesadilla. Warm on griddle, garnish with more salsa, if desired, and serve. Recipe makes approximately four 6" quesadillas.
Banana Breakfast Goat Cheese Quesadilla
This quesadilla makes a delicious breakfast that's super fast and easy to make. Great for anyone on the go, kids will love it, and they'll get fruit, dairy and carbohydrates in one neat package that can be eaten without a fork or knife!
Place a goat cheese-covered tortilla (tortilla side down) on a griddle that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place banana slices and cinnamon on top, and cover with another tortilla that has been spread with goat cheese (cheese side down). Warm both sides thoroughly.
Eat as is, or top with extra bananas, syrup, whipped topping or powdered sugar. You're really going to love this one!
Note: If you're not a banana fan, try other fruit. Mango and peaches are two good alternatives.
