Jalapeno Green Onion Quesadilla
I had one lonely uncooked flour tortilla in the RV refrigerator that I wanted to use up. I usually make my quesadillas by putting some salsa and cheddar cheese inside and covering with another tortilla. No salsa was around, but I had some sliced scallions left over from a dish that I forgot to put them in and I had one jalapeno left from another recipe. I tried this dish and fell in love with it. The flavor reminded me a little bit of a Chinese scallion pancake but with some zip added by the jalapeno.
1 raw jalapeno
1 handful of shredded cheddar cheese
1 uncooked flour tortilla (or cooked thin flour tortilla)
Heat a griddle over medium heat. Cut the jalapeno in thin slices and remove some of the membrane and seeds if you want to reduce the heat. Cut the scallions into thin slices. Cook the jalapeno slices on the ungreased griddle until you start smelling the roasted peppers. Remove to a plate. Place the uncooked tortilla on the pan and cook until lightly browned on one side. Flip and barely cook the other side before adding the cheese, jalapenos and green onions to one half of the tortilla. Flip the other half on top and keep grilling until the cheese is melted. You may need to flip back and forth a few times. If you don't have the uncooked tortillas (we like the ones at Costco) just use a thin regular tortilla. It won't need to be cooked on both sides, just the outside.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.
We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
