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.

Cabbage Salsa

Cabbage Salsa is a delicious Mexican treat that is really easy to make. It’s great with tortilla chips and also goes well on chicken tacos! We made it from left over veggies in our fridge.

Ingreidents:
  • 1/4 head of cabbage, finely sliced or shredded
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • lime
  • salt
  • cilantro (optional)

Method:

Finely slice or shred the cabbage.  Dice the tomatoes, onion, and pepper.  Combine with the cabbage and add the juice of the lime.  Sprinkle with salt.

This is best made at least an hour ahead of time so that the flavors can combine.  The salt will draw out some of the juices from the cabbage and tomatoes over time.
