  • 4 soft flour or corn tortillas
  • 4 ounces Manchego cheese, sliced
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into chunks
  • 16 canned or jarred jalapeno slices


  1. Get out 1 tortilla on a work surface. Place about a quarter of the cheese on one half, not too near edge so cheese will not melt out as it cooks.
  2. Top cheese with a quarter of the avocado and four jalapeno slices. Fold tortilla in half over filling to form a semicircle.
  3. Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Slide uncooked quesadilla onto the pan. Squish down with a weight or just press briefly with a spatula. Cook 1 minute, then flip the quesadilla and grill 1 minute more or until cheese is melted.
  4. Transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board and slice into 6 wedges. Serve immediately. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Makes 24 wedges.
