Because DH can't eat cheese & DS wasn't going to be home I made some grilled sandwiches & broccoli salad for a light dinner. While DH & DD ate boring tuna, I dined on these delicious quesadillas! :) I had everything on hand, with just a small deviation. I used green olives stuffed with jalapeno peppers instead of green olives & chili peppers & I cut the recipe down to make just two quesadillas (but only made one & stuffed it), then used the panini press to cook it instead of the oven. I loved the blend of flavors. The cilantro (coriander leaves) & olives were very refreshing & balanced the cheeses quite nicely. Thanks for sharing, Iceland! :) Made for Ramadan tag game.
