I folded mine in half to make a delicious, crispy quesadilla and topped it with avocado slices for an amazing light lunch. The combonation of the salsa and goat cheese is just wonderfully unexpected. I will definitly have to experiment with putting goat cheese in mexican food more often. Just make sure you don't dive in and that you give it a minute to cool down - the goat cheese gets really hot! Thanks for the post!
