Grilled Quesadillas

I learned this trick by watching Barbecue University hosted by Steven Raichlen. If you ever get a chance to watch this show, do it. I tape it and re-watch it for learning new tips. It's worth the research!

These are exceptionally quick and are rapidly becoming my favorite grilled snack! I've varied his recipe a bit by changing the cheese (I find Muenster is great for melting) and modified it slightly to "lighten" it up. Of course, you could add chicken, pork, or whatever...

  • Tortillas
  • Meunster cheese, sliced
  • Sliced zuchini
  • Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • dash of cumin
  • dash of salt


Prepare the butter, oil, cumin, and salt in a small pan with a brush for brushing on the outside of the Quesidillas.

Warm the tortillas on the top lid of your grill. This lets you bend them easier without breaking. Once they are warm, you can build the quesadillas.

Place two slices of cheese on half of a tortilla. Cover the half with sliced zuchini and chopped cilantro. Fold in half and place on the grill. Brush the top with the butter-oil mixture. You will probably need to turn the quesadillas in about 30 seconds--keep an eye on them. When they are ready, turn them over once and brush the other side. Let cook just about the same amount of time on the second side and serve.
