For some quick great Mexican flavors Quesadillas are really simple and quick to prepare.
1 package flour tortillas or homemade
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2- 4 ounce cans chopped Ortega chiles
1 cup pitted sliced black olives
1 comal, cast iron frying pan or griddle
Heat the comal, cast iron frying pan or griddle and rub a light coat of cooking oil on the surface. Place some of the grated cheese across the lower half of the flour tortilla and then spoon some chopped green chiles over the cheese. Finish by topping with some sliced black olives. Fold the top half over the bottom half and place on the hot comal.
Cook until the tortilla takes on a golden to brown color. Careful not to burn. Remove to a board and cut in thirds (pie shapes) and serve with your favorite salsa.
After you make the first few, you can make tons of these and they are great for parties!
If you like a little more chile heat, please use canned chopped chiles jalapeños or serranos instead of the milder standard green chiles.
