Science of Grate Grilling 5.5 CINCO DE MAYO Grilled Quesadillas

Break out GrillGrates to grill fabulous Cinco de Mayo Quesadillas.  Invite your friends over for a real treat that you can make ahead of time and just add the toppings before grilling.

Two flour tortillas form a sandwich that becomes the platform for the quesadilla toppings.  You can use several different fillings for the sandwich between the tortillas. 
  • Just Cheese- 3 part mexican cheese or whatever you have in the fridge
  • 3 Bean Mash or can of refried beans sprinkled with a little cheese
  • Even sliced pears and goat cheese
TIP:  Make the flour tortilla bases ahead of time and separate with wax paper.   Make two or three and enjoy putting the toppings on with your guests.  Suggested toppings:
  • Salsa
  • Tomato slices
  • Mexican Cheese
  • Avocado slices
  • NONE- bring inside as chip for dips!

GrillGrate TIP:  Keep GrillGrate temp below 400F- no burning of the bottom of the tortilla- just crispy golden sear marks.   LOW on Gas Grills- hood temp will read 300F.  10 minute grilling time required to thoroughly grill toppings and get tortillas crispy.
