Cilantro and Scallion Quesadillas for a Crowd
You can fit only one or two quesadillas in a skillet at once. We wanted to find a way to make four tasty quesadillas with perfectly melted cheese in one go.
Why This Recipe Works
The key to making four quesadillas in one shot lies in the timing. We discovered that it was best to bake folded tortillas on an oiled baking sheet until spotty brown (5 to 7 minutes) and then fill them with a full cup of shredded provolone mixed with mozzarella, flavored with minced jarred jalapeño chiles, fresh cilantro, and scallion. A quick return to the oven finishes the browning process, without the cheese oozing out all over the baking sheet. Allowing the quesadillas to cool slightly before cutting them into wedges helps the cheese set up.
