The basic formula for a quesadilla includes your choice of tortillas, such as wheat, white corn, or yellow corn, and cheese, such as Cotija (a sharp Mexican cheese), Jack, pepper Jack, cheddar, Gruyère, Gouda, or goat cheese. Embellishments range from spicy to sweet; in this recipe from Man Made Meals, you will find three variations to use.
The traditional pan for cooking quesadillas is a sort of Mexican griddle called a comal. You can use a large (10- to 12-inch) cast-iron or nonstick skillet instead. As you can imagine, America’s “master griller” (Esquire) and cookbook author Steven Raichlen‘s kind of quesadilla is grilled. Lightly brush the outside of the quesadillas with melted butter or oil and grill them directly over a medium flame. For perfect grilled quesadillas, use a quesadilla basket!
