Pita Quesadillas with Nacho Jalapenos
These quesadillas with a pita twist are a must-try.
These pita quesadillas are filled to the brim with cheese, chopped tomato and sliced nacho jalapenos.
They’re made with quartered pita pocket bread and 2 types of cheese (cheddar and Monterey jack).
The cheese is not only on the inside but also on the outside of the pita bread along with a little granulated garlic and chopped cilantro.
The subtle taste of garlic combined with the cheese and tomato is so good.
These quesadillas not only taste wonderful but they add beautiful color to an appetizer plate.
The only thing is that they disappear quickly so you may need to make extra.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Pita bread rounds, cheddar and jack cheese, green onion, tomato, cilantro, salsa, lime…
…sliced nacho jalapenos (pre-sliced pickled jalapenos from a jar), and granulated garlic
A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how to make it.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the pita bread into quarters.
Carefully open each pita quarter.
Inside each pita quarter, add the cheddar cheese…
tomatoes, a nacho jalapeno slice, and…
On the top of each pita quarter…
add the jack cheese,
and granulated garlic.
Set each pita quarter on a cookie sheet…
…and bake in a preheated oven just long enough for the cheese to melt (about 5 minutes).
Just before serving, drizzle lime juice on top of the quesadillas.
Serve while warm…
