Identify Quesadillas: Carve Your Initials

Grilled quesadillas are wonderful for an impromptu dinner party. I like to invite friends over on a weeknight, set out a whole bunch of toppings, and let guests assemble their own quesadillas. Next, I throw the personalized quesadillas on the grill and heat them up, slice into wedges and enjoy! To avoid having to rip the tops off of the quesadillas to see whose quesadillas is whose, have your friends carve their first initial into a tortilla (like the D in the above pic). When stacking the tortillas, be sure to inform guests to place the initial side down as the base tortilla. When you flip the quesadillas on the grill the initial will be on top. To take a look at my super fast, wonderfully delicious quesadilla recipe,

Grilled Quesadillas
From PartySugar

1 cup shredded cooked chicken*
1 cup grilled steak, sliced into 1/2 inch cubes*
1 cup roasted red peppers
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup chopped black olives
1 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 cup pepper jack cheese, grated
14 tortillas
for toppings
sour cream

  1. Mark each tortilla with guests initials.
  2. Using the fillings, assemble quesadillas to your liking.
  3. Preheat your grill to low heat.
  4. Place the quesadillas on the grill and cook until grill marks are present and the quesadilla turns golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. The inside should be warm and the cheese should be melted. Once finished cooking, remove the quesadilla from the grill, cut into 6 wedges, and serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.

Makes 7 quesadillas.

*I rubbed several chicken breasts and a flank steak with a spice rub. Next I grilled them before my guests arrived and allowed them to cool before slicing into small pieces.

You can also use a toothpick dipped in food colouring to paint your initials. It looks cooler too.
