I admit it . . . I love to eat but I'm so not a "foodie." And I don't cook often because my husband is wonderful at it. He does 99% of the cooking in our house. (Lucky me!) But I wanted to make dinner last Sunday night in honor of John's birthday. I decided to make quesadillas like the ones I had on our trip to San Francisco a couple of years back. We went to the Fog City Diner, a fun Frisco landmark located at 1300 Battery Street just off The Embarcadero.
I loved their quesadillas and spent the entire meal trying to figure out what was in them. Luckily the waiter was nice enough to let me in on the ingredients. Here's what you'll need:
Large flour tortillas, 3 cheeses (gruyère, asiago and fontina), sliced smoked chicken breast (I use organic), sweet baby corn, and scallions.
Grate the cheeses, cook the corn and chop the scallions. Now you're ready to start assembling your quesadillas.
Coat a large non-stick frying pan with vegetable or canola oil. When the oil is nice and hot, place a tortilla in the pan and begin layering the ingredients. First spread a layer of one of the cheeses, then the scallions, Next comes the chicken and the second cheese. Finally, the corn and the last cheese. Be sure to have your first and last layers as cheese to help the tortillas stick together.
Top if off with another tortilla. When the bottom one is golden brown, carefully flip it over to brown the other side.
When all the cheese has melted, cut the quesadilla into quarters and your done. Now wasn't that easy? And they really are yummy.
If I can make these, anyone can. Enjoy!
