  • 6 large flour tortillas
  • 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup Mozzarella grated
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 cup white cheese grated
  • 1 jalapeno or chili cut into rounds
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped
  • 6 tablespoons butter for frying


  • Sizzle 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Spread cream cheese over one side of the flour tortillas, and lay a flour tortilla in the skillet, cream cheese side up.
  • Build the quesadillas by laying a combo of three types of grated cheese on the bottom tortilla, and then sprinkle parsley and jalapeno rounds. Top with a second tortilla, cream cheese side down.
  • When the tortilla is golden on the first side, carefully flip the quesadilla to the other side, adding another 1/2 tablespoon butter to the skillet at the same time. Continue cooking until the second side is golden. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and fillings.
  • Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with Pico de Gallo, sour cream, and black beans on the side.
  • Enjoy!
