“Something In A Tortilla”

What to have for the next meal is not always an easy decision. When I can’t come up with any ideas that appeal to me at the moment Faye will sometimes suggest, “How about something in a tortilla?” There is no limit to what can be served in a tortilla, so that doesn’t really narrow down the choices, but it does get the creative juices flowing. A food that seems quite ordinary on its own suddenly becomes more appealing when folded or rolled in a tortilla.

“Something in a tortilla” was what I went with for lunch today, this time in the form of a quesadilla. It was a good way to get rid of a few things loitering in the refrigerator, and enjoy fresh veggies flourishing in the garden.

Onion, garlic, Serrano chiles, red and yellow sweet peppers and cumin seeds were sautéed with a little olive oil and kosher salt.

Roasted corn was added shortly thereafter.

After fresh tender spinach was added, the skillet was covered with a lid.

I sometimes prepare quesadillas without cheese (which makes quesadillas a misnomer), but this time I used goat’s milk Gouda on whole wheat tortillas. The skillet was misted with olive oil spray.

Cilantro is a perfect fit for this kind of dish.

Tortillas (and a little cheese) can turn a simple stir fry into something special. Don’t forget the hot sauce!
