Easy Cheesy Cooking

So I've done a little bit of cooking that was worth blogging about. First up is again from America's Test Kitchen, Quesadillas. Of course quesadillas are typically just cheese but I was making these for dinner so I added leftover taco meat and black olives. It was very simple, warm up a skillet lightly toast the tortillas, fill with cheese, brush one side with oil and put in skillet, oil side down. Let it melt and get crispy, while it's cooking brushing the other side with oil. Flip and let the other side toast. Serve with sour cream, salsa, etc.
Also I made a frittata, ham and cheese this time, with leftover ham . I love frittatas because they are simple to make and can always be different depending on your fillings. I used about 8-10 eggs, scrambled with a little milk. Add to a oven safe pan, let eggs set a little, then add your fillings, shake to destribute fillings. Let set a bit more and put in the 350 degree over until lightly browned. Run under broiler if cheese on top. Enjoy!

I do love Mexican dishes! Minus the critter of course! There's nothing like warm melted cheese on a cold day.
