Super simple, unusual, and satisfying appetizer that everyone loves
  • 2 tortillas
  • sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • cilantro leaves, chopped, no stems
  • diced green chiles
  1. Note: It's easiest to make these with a quesadilla maker and just assemble right on the quesadilla maker. If you don't have one, just assemble on an appropriate sized skillet. Easiest way to flip it to cook the top side is when cheese is melted, slide quesadilla onto a plate, invert the skillet over the plate and flip it. Then lightly brown the other side of the quesadilla.
  2. Place tortilla on quesadilla maker or skillet. Cover with a light layer of sharp cheddar cheese leaving a half inch space at edge of tortilla.
  3. Cover with a layer of diced green chiles, then a layer of sliced black olives, and a layer of cilantro leaves.
  4. Top with another light layer of shredded cheese and the second tortilla and cook over medium heat until cheese is melted and tortilla is lightly browned.
  5. If using a skillet, flip to lightly brown the top side using the above method.
  6. Enjoy!
