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.

Serve these delicious quesadillas with salsa, guacamole and pico de gallo as a finger food appetizer, snack or even a light main dish.
