Pepper Jack Quesadillas


Pepper Jack Quesadillas

5 Min

If it's got cheese in it, you know we love it! And what could be cheesier than a quesadilla? Mmm!

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack-pepper cheese
  • 10 ten-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese over each of 5 tortillas and top with remaining tortillas, like a sandwich.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Place 1 "tortilla sandwich" in skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted, turning halfway through cooking.
  3. Remove to a covered platter and continue with remaining "tortilla sandwiches" until all are cooked. Cut each finished quesadilla into 4 wedges and serve.


We like to serve these with sour cream, salsa, and sliced scallions. And for added cheese flavor, after the quesadilla has been turned over, we brush the top with an additional 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil and sprinkle with a teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese.

really? why use oil? made these for years, many varieties, never used oil. dry makes the tortilla super crunchy. just watch so it doesn't burn. cheese is oily enough
