Chorizo Quesadillas

With the Super Bowl just days away, I am officially declaring that this week, on La Cocina de Leslie, is Snack Week!  Every day this week, I will share quick and easy recipes for delicious snacks
 you can enjoy for any occasion.

There's really nothing easier, or tastier, than Quesadillas de Chorizo.  With as little as three ingredients, you can get your snack on!  No measuring required. 

Quesadillas de Chorizo


  • Chorizo
  • Queso Fresco, Oaxaca or Mozzarella Cheese
  • Flour or Corn Tortillas

In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat.  Add the chorizo; until the chorizo is completely cooked.  Remove from heat; set aside.

Heat the tortillas on a griddle or comal, over medium-low heat,  just until soft and pliable.  Do not remove the griddle or comal from the heat.

Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of cooked chorizo and cheese onto tortilla; fold tortillas in half.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter on the griddle or comal.  Heat the quesadillas on the griddle or comal, until the tortillas are slightly crisp and the cheese inside has melted.

Serve with Refried Beans and/or sour cream, guacamole and your favorite salsa.  Enjoy!!!
