Triple Cheese Quesadillas

List of ingredients:

2 small cloves of garlic, unpeeled
2 tbsp salted butter, kept at room temperature
8 ounces Monterey Jack, grated
1-1/4 ounces Parmigiano Reggiano, grated finely
4 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
4 flour tortillas


You want to heat the oven to 200 degrees F and position a rack in the center of the oven. Take a small pot and bring two cups of water to a boil over a medium to high heat. Place your garlic cloves to the water and cook for about 5 minutes. Drain the garlic, allow it to cool and then peel it and put it into a bowl. Take a fork out and use it to mash the garlic, then you will add the butter to the garlic and continue to mix it together.

Now, take out a medium bowl and combine the Monterey Jack, Parmigiano, and goat cheese together in the bowl. Spread the garlic butter on one side of the tortillas and set the tortillas on a plate, buttered side down. Place the cheese mixture on the tortillas, making sure to cover only half of each tortilla and leaving a 1 inch uncovered area at the edge. Fold your tortillas in half.

Take a nonstick pan and place it over a medium heat. Cook two of your quesadillas at a time on the pan. You want to cook them for about 4 minutes and then flip each quesadilla. Continue cooking them until the other side is a nice golden color, then remove them from the pan and repeat the process for the others. Once all of them are cooked, you will want to cut them into quarters and serve them with some salsa if you choose. These quesadillas will be delicious and definitely hit the spot.
