Traditional Quesadilla and Salsa

Traditional quesadillas made with corn tortillas and delicious salsa recipe.

Quesadillas are super easy to make. We first grilled our marinated chicken and cut it into thin strips. We put the gluten free corn tortillas on the griddle and sprinkled a thick layer of cheese on each tortilla. Then, we layered chicken strips and more cheese on top. Finally, we grilled and flipped the tortillas and cut them into wedges.

For the salsa, we cut up two tomatoes, one jalapeno, and one onion into small, thin slices. We mixed all the tomatoes, jalapeno, and onion into a large bowl with cilantro and salt. Finally, stir all of it together and let it sit for at least ten minutes. The longer you let it sit the more juices come out of the tomato and the more flavorful it becomes.

Pimento Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

Delicious summer sandwich, and it’s really simple to make!

First, fry the bacon.  We used four pieces of bacon for each sandwich.  While the bacon is frying, spread  a thick layer of Pimento Cheese on your bread (we used gluten free bread). We usually go for a half inch thick layer of pimento cheese, but you can make it as thin or thick as  you like.  Then, we sliced up a tomato to go on the sandwich. Finally, we put each sandwich in a panini press.  If you don’t have a panini press, you could fry the sandwich in a pan with either a little butter or bacon grease.

Pimento cheese and bacon sandwiches are easy and make a great summer meal!

Grilled pineapples from last night’s dinner! The pineapple was actually quite good and surprisingly yummy for grilled fruit. The flesh was rubbed with brown sugar before being grilled for five minutes on each side.
