For the Grill of It - Quesadillas on the BBQ

When it comes to cooking in the Texas summer, there aren't many options: you can either heat up your house by cooking on the stove, or you can stand outside in the heat to cook on the grill.  No matter how you look at it, it's going to be HOT.  Last night I tried a little culinary experiment using both my stove and the grill, and I was rewarded with delicious results!  I'd been planning to make chicken fajitas for dinner (there are lots of recipes out there, but I used a seasoning mix for mine) and decided to kick them up a notch.  The result was:

BBQ Grilled Quesadillas


These quesadillas are easy to put together.  Here's what you need:

I used good ol' flour tortillas.  I'd recommend you use the 10" size or smaller so that they're easy to handle on the grill.
*Shredded cheese
I used a mixture of cheddar and pepperjack.
I used my chicken fajita filling, but you can use whatever sounds good to you!

Heat your grill to medium-low.  Put a tortilla down on the grill, then top with some cheese -- just eyeball it.  I used enough to lightly cover the surface, leaving a little bit of bare tortilla at the edges.  Spoon on your filling. Don't put a ton on; you want these to stick together well.  Top with more shredded cheese and then another tortilla.  Cook on one side until tortilla has nice grill marks and the cheese is starting to melt, then carefully flip over and grill until done.  If needed, use a spatula to kind of smoosh down your quesadilla so that both tortillas stay on.

That's all there is to it!  Enjoy!
