Jarlsberg® cheeses' scrumptious version of the Spanish Quesadilla was created by The Culinary Institute of Norway. Served with a salsa fresca, the taste is lively and bursts with fresh flavor. What makes the perfect quesadilla? We voted - temptingly gooey, super melty Jarlsberg® cheese combined with bacon and a deliciously tangy salsa that ties it all together. Tuck into toasted golden tortillas to add a satisfying crispy bite.
Fry the bacon, drain and chop. Remove seeds from chile pepper and finely dice. Chop the tomatoes, dice the shallot and garlic clove. To make salsa: combine pepper with tomatoes, shallot and garlic with lime juice, coriander and salt and pepper to taste. Divide Jarlsberg® cheese slices and chopped bacon on one half of each tortilla, Top with one quarter cup of salsa and fold tortilla over, pressing down to close. Toast tortilla for about a minute on each side in a medium-hot, lightly oiled pan. Cut each tortilla in half and serve with rest of the salsa on the side, or combine salsa with black beans and fresh chopped cilantro to make a side salad.
