In the Kitchen With Jason: Yummers Quesodillas

This will be the first recipe that is entirely, well almost, our own. It is loosely inspired by a food item sold at Grand Traverse Pie Company, but it no longer resembles the original at all, so we call it original. The recipe is for one quesodilla, but it is easy to make more as you can make them one after another on the grill.


  • 2 six inch corn tortilla, divided
  • 1 Tbsp salsa
  • 4 Tbsp shredded Cheddar, divided
  • 1 Tbsp onion

  • Put the quesodilla plates on your George Foreman grill. If you do not have a George Foreman grill, go out and buy one that has quesodilla plates so that you can make this recipe.
  • Warm the Georgie up to medium-high, this takes about 5 minutes.
  • Once heated, open it up and  place 1 tortilla in the center of the grill.
  • On top of this, spread the salsa.
  • Sprinkle 2 Tbsp of the cheddar cheese on top of the salsa.
  • Cover this with the onion and then apply the remaining cheese.
  • Top all of this with the second tortilla and close the grill.
  • Come back in about 70 seconds, 60 isn't enough and 90 is way too many, and pull your quesoyummy off the grill.
  • Cut along divider lines and serve with sour cream on the side.
Be warned though, you will find that you eat way too many of these delish snacks when you make them. Also, be warned that these do not retain their heat well and by the time you finish cooking a third one, the first will no longer be warm.

Ha, ha, Jason, you crack me up. Us old folks make our quesadillas in a cast iron fry pan, and flip them half way through. But we have to do without those cool grill marks that show you where to cut. :)
