Salsa and Quesadillas

C'mon.  Who needs a recipe for salsa or quesadillas?  I know, I know.  But both turned out FABULOUSLY.  So, why not?

  • 3 large tomatoes, on the vine, from your yard, or heirloom.  Flavorful.
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • salt
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • corn tortillas
  • fresh mozarella
  • crushed red pepper or reconstituted ancho chilis
  • greek-style yogurt
  • 1 avocado
  • olive, canola, or sunflower oil

For the salsa:
  1. Cut three large tomatoes in half and place on a foil-lined cookie sheet.  Put in the oven at 375F for 20 - 25 minutes.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine tomatoes, 4 cloves of garlic, a pinch or two of salt, and a dash of cumin.
  3. Blend.  
  4. Heat a frying pan.  Add 1 Tbsp oil and heat 30 seconds.  Add 1 corn tortilla.  Top with cheese and red pepper and another corn tortilla.  Press lightly and fry 2 minutes.
  5. Flip, and fry 3 minutes more.
  6. Flip one more time to get your very own personal favorite crispiness. 
  7. Remove to a plate and top with yogurt, salsa, and avocado.
