Quick Snack Cheese and Jalapeno Quesadilla

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by robd16

It always makes me laugh when I hear people saying Jalapeño with 'J' and not a 'H' sound. It reminds me of days gone by when I used to say it! Whatever the case these are just gorgeous, the heat of the Jalapeno cooled by the cheese against the foil of the crisp tortilla is just perfect
