After opening up my pint of Roasted Corn Salsa for Roasted Corn Salsa salad yesterday, I knew I’d be in for a few other corn salsa treats this week. Today’s creation is a simple favorite for the kids: Roasted Corn Salsa Quesadillas. Quesadillas are definitely are go-to food for the kids in a pinch. They will eat nearly anything inside a quesadilla. I love that about them. It also gives my husband and I the opportunity to eat messy things while keeping their food fairly contained.
Roasted Corn Salsa Quesadillas
Ingredients for 4 quesadillas
- 8 tortillas
- 1 cup Roasted Corn Salsa
- 1 cup Mexican cheese, shredded
- extra Roasted Corn Salsa and/or sour cream, for dipping (optional)
Lay four tortillas on a sprayed or greased griddle (or one at a time in a pan). Top with 2 tablespoons cheese and 1/4 cup salsa per tortilla. Top with remaining cheese and remaining tortillas. Grill over medium heat for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve with more salsa and sour cream for dipping, if desired.
Unsurprisingly, the kids loved these. My husband and I thought they were pretty tasty, too. And, maybe more importantly during the holiday season (which also includes both my birthday and my husband’s), it’s an incredibly fast meal to get on the table.
