This Carne Asada & Cacique Manchego Quesadilla is the newest addition to my menu planning. Don’t you love when you stumble upon a recipe that everyone in your family is gushing over. Now that the Caciquedilla microsite launched I am looking to switch up that same ol’ menu routine we have going on here.
My idea of a quesadilla goes far beyond a tortilla and cheese. I love a quesadilla that is exploding with deliciousness and flavor that keeps everyone wanting more. As I prepare for our Super Bowl party I can’t help but want to wow my friends and family with these filling quesadillas that are easy to eat fun for entertaining.
Start with the key ingredients flour tortillas, Carne Asada and Cacique Manchego Cheese. To make each quesadilla customizable and add that flair of flavor I love, I have some sliced tomato, avocado, pepper and cilantro.
I cooked up the carne asada on medium to high heat with a tablespoon of oil, sprinkled on some salt and pepper to taste. The Cacique Manchego authentic cheese has been shredded, making it easy to melt that layer of deliciousness in the quesadilla.
Simply place a tortilla on a medium-high heat pan, layer the Cacique Manchego cheese over the entire tortilla. Add the carne asada to half of the quesadilla, doing this will make it easy to fold your tortilla over making a no fuss quesadilla. I add my favorite ingredients like sliced tomato, roasted chilies and cilantro.
Fold your quesadilla in half and continue to heat through about 1 minute. Once your tortilla is toasted and the Cacique Manchego Cheese has melted, the quesadilla is ready to plate and cut up.
Immediately serve the Carne Asada Cacique Manchego Cheese quesadilla.
