DIRECTIONS

  • Stir in jalapeno pepper; set aside.
  • Brush one side of 3 tortillas with half of the cooking oil.
  • Place tortillas, oiled sides down, on a large baking sheet. Spread the chorizo filling over tortillas on baking sheet. Combine cheese and cilantro or parsley; sprinkle over filling.
  • Top with the remaining tortillas. Brush with the remaining oil.
  • Place quesadillas on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat.
  • Grill for 3 to 4 minutes or until filling is heated through and tortillas are starting to brown, turning once halfway through grilling.
  • To serve, cut quesadillas into wedges.
