This is delicious. I put 2 chopped black olives on one half to compare, it was good both ways.

I think I died and went to heaven. This was the BEST Quesadilla I've ever had. I have never had gouda by itself before and it was DELICIOUS. I used smoked because for some reason, I was thinking that was what the recipe called for. I also didn't use the scallions, but it was a personal taste preference. The flavor combo of the Gouda, tomato, and cilantro was perfect. I served mine with homemade guacamole and that was just the icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing, I'll be making this a lot. Too bad I'm supposed to be dieting :p UPDATE: I made it for lunch the next day and nearly died again, it was so wonderful. I went to make it again on the 3rd day and realized I was out of tomato and guacamole... so I went to the store today and got more ingredients :) My boyfriend thinks it is the best as well.

Ok, this is very easy and was a great snack Sandi! I HAD to use the "stuff" you buy at most markets but am planning a trip to Trader Joes to get the genuine article for the next ones. I love the flavor of these babies and will be making them again this weekend with "the good stuff". Thank you Sandi, and you do NOT have to "shut up" LOL

Yummy! We added some fresh basil from the garden and sauted onion, pablano pepper and diced chicken. MMM, good!

Loved the method! I will use salsa instead of tomato but that's personal preference. Didn't have Gouda but used a Mexican blend. Love it. Served with Black Bean soup.

YUM! I left out the green onions because I didn't have any in the house, but man oh man was this a great quesadilla. DH loved this as well, hard to get a rise out of him with food because he'll eat basically anything, but he ACTUALLY asked QUESTIONS about this recipe and was *INTERSTED* in what was in it because he liked it so much. That's a pretty big deal!

Oh My Gouda-ness!! I think I have just reached enlightenment (at least in regards to quesadillas). Didn't have access to authentic Gouda but it is outstandingly delicious with regular Meunster!!

This was good, and my first time making quesadillas. I used this recipe as a base & used what I had on hand, cheddar/monterey jack combo and leftover cooked chicken. I doubled the cilantro (luv the stuff). Easy to make, I topped it off with sour cream and homemade salsa. more midnight snacks await... Thanks for posting.
