Gooey cheese, crispy bacon and salsa to die for

Jarlsberg’s 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 flavour. What makes the perfect quesadilla? We voted: Great quality Jarlsberg cheese melted all the way through. Perfectly toasted tortillas with an even, golden colour and a satisfying crispy bite. Finally, a deliciously tangy salsa that brings all the ingredients together and leaves you wanting more.

To make the tortillas

Slice the Jarlsberg, fry the bacon and remove the chilli seeds. Finely chop all the

and mix. Layer the cheese, bacon and a big spoon of the salsa fresca ingredient salsa on half of each tortilla, fold the other half over. Press it together and toast for about a minute on each side in a medium-hot, dry pan. Cut each tortilla into four and serve with the rest of the salsa fresca on the side.
