It only takes 5 ingredients and 30 minutes to bring the authentic flavors of Jalisco, Mexico into your kitchen tonight! Quesadillas – the authentic way - are made by filling an uncooked tortilla with cheese, folding in half and cooking on a hot skillet until toasted. Serve with guacamole and your favorite GOYA® Salsita, and get ready for a party in your kitchen!
GOYA® Masarica (also known as masa harina or corn flour)
GOYA® Quesadilla Shredded Cheese or Oaxaca cheese, thinly sliced
GOYA® Jalapeño Peppers seeded and quartered lengthwise (optional)
For the garnish:
In medium bowl, mix together Masarica and salt; pour water into masarica mixture. Using wet hands, knead mixture until it comes together to form a large ball of dough. Roll dough into 12 balls.
Using tortilla press lined with plastic wrap, press each ball into 4 ½” diameter circle. (Keep balls of dough and pressed tortillas moist by covering with damp towels.)
Heat lightly greased comal, griddle, or cast iron pan on stove over medium heat. To dough circle, add one cheese slice and jalapeño strip (if using). Fold circle in half (half-moon shape), pressing edges to seal. Place tortillas on hot cooking surface. Cook until golden brown and toasted in spots and cheese melts, flipping once, about 6 minutes.
Serve with guacamole and salsita, if desired.
To make perfect tortillas without a Mexican tortilla press, try this: On flat surface, place one ball of dough between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the bottom of a skillet, evenly press down until dough forms 4½” round.
