Melted cheese! Can I hear an "amen," somebody? Enter the quesadilla, the melted-cheese-lovers' answer to their gooey-themed prayers. Sure, we add all kinds of meats and seafood, and all kinds of chiles, but, really, it's all about the cheese. Blogger Amanda at fakeginger is partial to barbecue chicken, and in this recipe makes the unusual choice of mozzarella cheese instead of the typical Jack or Cheddar.
Everyone has a special quesadilla blend. Kitchen Daily contributor (and wickedly talented cook of all things Mexican) Shelley Wiseman keeps it basic in her recipe for cheese quesadillas, with only jalapeños keeping company with the Monterey Jack inside the tortilla. Curtis Stone combines chicken, avocado and chipotle chiles in adobo sauce in his version. Steven Raichlen grills his all-vegetable-and-cheese quesadillas (which feature flame-roasted tomatoes), instead of pan-frying them. Got to have seafood? Try this crabmeat quesadilla recipe, made slightly piquant with chiles and orange zest.
