BBQ! Quick Quesadillas

Quesadillas on the BBQ? Why not!

Recipe originally appeared in the 15th edition of the Barbecue Genius Grillers Handbook, and can also be found at www.onthegrill.ca.

Ready In: 15 Minutes

You can turn down the heat by substituting mild or medium salsa, or by omitting the jalapeño pepper.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup hot salsa
  • 4 green onions minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 cups monterey jack cheese, grated

Directions

  • Preheat barbecue on LOW. Combine salsa, onions and jalapeño pepper in a small bowl. Lightly brush one side of each flour tortilla with olive oil. (This will be the outside of the quesadilla.) Spread two of the tortillas with the salsa mixture, then sprinkle with grated cheese. Cover with remaining tortillas.
  • Place the quesadillas directly on the cooking grids, and grill about 3 minutes per side, checking the bottom frequently.
  • Transfer to a wooden cutting board and let sit for 1 minute before slicing with a sharp knife or pizza wheel.
