Quesadilla Nacho Party BitesMacki West
In preparation for the football party season where my house is filled with dudes yelling at the screen and jumping up and down and eating non stop one-handed while the other hand holds a beer, while the children are playing wildly, while the ladies check the score as they sit around chatting and nibbling, I decided to make tiny quesadilla bites. Everyone loves quesadillas (if you don’t, keep it to yourself!) and these are topped with everything you want/need. Now I can skip the bowls of double-dipped guacamole (have you ever watched kids eat out of a community bowl of guac? Disgusting.) and sour cream that’s had everything dragged through it and all sorts of drips of everything everywhere. With these little cuties it’s all in one place: your mouth! These quesadilla nacho bites are easy to make too so you can whip up as many as you want without breaking a sweat.
All you have to do is…
Pick your tortillas (I like white corn)
Shred some cheddar and jack cheese (I actually use a cheese slicer because it’s faster with less mess)
Make some guacamole or buy a container
Get a can of sliced olives and quarter them
Quarter some grape tomatoes
Get some sour cream
Make your quesadillas: Place one tortilla on a flat-bottom pan, cover with cheese, top with another tortilla and heat until just beginning to melt, then flip and heat until melted. Remove and let cool for a couple minutes. Use a pizza cutter to slice into bite-size pieces. Place a dollop of guacamole and sour cream on top, then add one piece of tomato and olive. Optional: Jalapeño, beans, cilantro, shredded chicken cooked inside the quesadilla would be excellent too.
