Quesadillas. A classic Mexican dish that has remained a staple since the 16th century, and for good reason. While they’re traditionally warmed on a griddle, what if we told you that you could make an ooey gooey quesadilla without the greasy mess of a stove? Inspired by Tex-Mex cuisine, this tasty “toasterdilla” recipe will not only satisfy your cheese cravings but will also make a crowd pleasing Cinco de Mayo appetizer or tasty lunch that anyone can enjoy.

Ingredients:

  • 1(12-inch) flour tortilla 
  • 1/2 packed cup shredded three cheese Mexican blend

  • 1/4 red pepper, diced 
  • 1 Tbsp. green onion 
  • 1/4 cup black olives

Directions:

COOK IT. 

  • In a small skillet over medium heat, add tsp of butter until melted.
  • Add corn, onion, olives, and pepper to pan and cook until soft.

BUILD IT.

  • In two quadrants across from one another, place a handful of cheese on the tortilla.
  • Add the cooked mixture of onions, olive, and pepper to one pile of cheese and chopped green onion to the other.
  • Fold one side to the center of the tortilla and do the same on the other side.
  • Bring the bottom half up to meet the top and fold the tortilla in the center.

      TOAST IT.

      • Now place it in the panini press and close and lock the press. Wipe around the outside of the press to clean off any drips with a paper towel. 
      • Place the filled Panini Press into the right slot of your Revolution Toaster with the handles facing out.
