Queso de papa


I adore a good cheesy quesadilla with spicy potatoes. I think I could eat one every day. There is a lovely Mexican restaurant nearby that make excellent quesadillas, but I also frequently make my own ones. In these the filling is just potatoes, onion, garlic, chilli, chipotle, tomato purée, smoked cheese and mozzarella. The potatoes were pre-boiled and then added to the mix. Then I filled the tortilla wraps with the mix and fried on each side until a bit crispy.

In case you spotted the chive flowers on the plate, yes I’ve been adding chive flowers to many dishes lately. They add a lovely lilac colour, but also a subtle onion flavour. You should try it too!

These quesadillas are perfect summer food and I intend to make them quite often this summer. What are your favourite quesadilla fillings? I’m also very keen on refried beans ones.

Have a nice weekend!

  1. Wow these sound superb and look so pretty with the chive flowers. We had quesadillas recently but just the cheese and avocado and spinach ones that I served with some beans - one of my favourite quesadilla combinations was this one https://gggiraffe.blogspot.com/2014/11/cheesey-kale-quesadillas-with-mole.html

    1. Thank you for sharing that recipe, it sounds absolutely incredible especially with the homemade tortillas!

  2. You need guacamole! I do like the potato idea, though I usually just use cheese and chopped jalapenos.

    1. Cheese and jalapeno combo sounds really nice too.
