Blooming Quesadilla Ring

Ingredients :

  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)
  • 1 cup cooked and shredded chicken (optional)
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (canned or frozen and thawed)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or melted butter
  • Salsa, guacamole, and sour cream for dipping

Préparations :

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare Filling: In a large bowl, combine the shredded cheese, cooked chicken (if using), diced bell peppers, red onion, corn, chopped cilantro, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Assemble the Quesadilla Ring:
    • Place a large piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
    • Arrange the tortillas in a circular pattern on the parchment paper, overlapping slightly, so they form a ring. The inner edges should be overlapping and create a small opening in the center.
  4. Add Filling: Spoon the filling mixture onto the overlapping part of the tortillas, spreading it evenly around the ring.
  5. Fold and Seal:
    • Fold the outer edges of the tortillas over the filling, pressing down to seal and create a ring.
    • Brush the tops of the tortillas with olive oil or melted butter for a golden, crispy finish.
  1. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the tortillas are golden brown and crispy.
  2. Serve:
    • Remove the quesadilla ring from the oven and let it cool slightly.
    • Carefully transfer the quesadilla ring to a serving platter.
    • Serve with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream in small bowls placed in the center of the ring for dipping.
