Gooey cheese, crispy bacon and a salsa to die for

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.

To make the tortillas

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.
