Last week we had lots of fresh tomatoes, so Clare told me I should make pico de gallo, and some mexican food. We make burritos fairly frequently, so I thought it would be fun to make something slightly different. We happened to have a bunch of pepper jack cheese, so I decided to try my hand at quesadillas. I made them in a pan, spraying a bit of canola oil onto a nonstick griddle, then I added a flour tortilla, topped half with the shredded cheese, and a mixture of black beans, onions, red peppers, cumin and coriander. After about 2 minutes I folded over the rest of the tortilla. I would have flipped the whole thing, except I overfilled them a bit.
For the pico de gallo, I finely chopped tomatoes, and let them drain in a colander a bit, so it wouldn’t be too soupy. I added some finely chopped onion, and a couple hot peppers from the garden. I put one clove of garlic in and a little salt. The combo turned out to be very tasty.
