Goat Cheese and Guava Quesadillas

Cotija cheese is a firm textured, somewhat crumbly white Mexican cheese, traditionally made from goat's milk but also made from cow's milk[. It is available in latin grocery stores. If Cotija is not available, substitute with feta. If guava jelly is unavailable, substitute strawberry.]

Ingredients
  • 5 ounces goat cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons guava jelly (recommended: Knott's)
  • 8 taco size flour tortillas
  • Cotija cheese, for garnish
  • 1 cup lime and cilantro salsa
Directions
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine goat cheese and guava jelly until just blended (little bits of cheese and jelly are a nice in a bite). Spread the goat cheese mixture on 4 of the tortillas and top with the remaining 4 tortillas.

  • Lightly coat the skillet with cooking spray. Place 1 of the quesadillas at a time and cook until lightly browned. Turn and finish browning the second side. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas.

  • Slice quesadillas and serve sprinkled with crumbled Cotija cheese with salsa on the side for dipping.
