Beef Quesadillas with Queso Blanco Sauce
- In a small pot, add 1 cup Monterey jack cheese, half of the green chilies, heavy cream, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper and 3 cloves garlic. Heat over low heat till cheese is melted and well blended, about 10 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent bottom from burning. Keep on low until ready to serve.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown beef for 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Drain oil and add 1 tbsp. salt and the remaining cumin, chili, garlic, green chilies and cheese.
- In a large skillet, preheat over medium-low heat. Drizzle olive oil and place 1 flour tortilla and fill with 1/4 of meat mixture. There will be enough for four large quesadillas. Place another tortilla on top. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes till light golden brown and cook on other side. If the quesadilla is browning too quickly, turn down to low heat. Repeat steps for the remaining quesadillas.
- Cut each quesadilla into 4 pieces and top with warm queso sauce. Garnish with cilantro, tomato and sour cream.
