Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

SALSA
1 cup peeled cored and finely chopped pineapple
1 cup diced peeled pitted mango
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
QUESADILLA
8 5-6" diamet corn tortillas
2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 3 ounces)
1 cup golden hominy, drained
3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Directions

FOR SALSA: Stir first 5 ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Season salsa with salt and pepper.


Cook tortillas over gas flame until blackened in spots, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to work surface. Sprinkle 4 tortillas with both cheeses and hominy, dividing equally; top with remaining 4 tortillas. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons or more of oil in each of 2 heavy large skillets over medium heat. Place 2 quesadillas in each skillet. Cook until bottoms are crisp and brown, pressing occasionally with spatula about 2 minutes. Turn quesadillas over. Cook until bottoms are brown and cheeses melt, adding more oil as needed, about 2 minute longer. Cut quesadillas into quarters. Arrange 4 quarters on each of 4 plates. Serve with salsa.
