Makes 6 Quesadillas

Making quesadillas on the grill isn’t so much a recipe as a method--and a laid back state of mind. For the most delicious (and gooey) results, use two varieties of melting cheese such as Queso Oaxaca and Queso Quesadilla (Asadero or Jack are other good varieties). A medium low to low fire allows the tortillas to crisp and the cheese to melt without burning the exterior. Consider this recipe a guide, and feel free to enhance as you please--fresh chopped cilantro, pickled jalapenos, roasted peppers, smoked chicken or fajita meat would make excellent additions. Prefer flour tortillas? Use them instead!

1 cup shredded queso Oaxaca

1 cup shredded queso quesadilla

12 corn tortillas

Salsa Verde or Salsa Roja

Prepare a medium-low charcoal fire. Place about 2 tablespoons of each cheese on a corn tortilla. Top with another tortilla, and use a large spatula to transfer to the grill. Cook until the tortilla is lightly charred and crisp and the cheese is melted and gooey. Serve immediately with your favorite salsa.
