If you are looking for food and drinks your guests will fall in love with,
try my quick quesadilla recipe from Simple Stunning Parties at Home
and my Cupid-friendly Cocktail: V-jito
½ cup canned refried beans
8 medium flour tortillas
¼ pound Monterrey Jack cheese, grated
¼ pound Cheddar cheese, grated
2 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh salsa, for serving
Sour cream, for serving
Spread refried beans on each of the tortillas. On 4
Tortillas, sprinkle enough of each cheese to cover
the tortilla, leaving a little space at the edge. Cover
with the remaining 4 tortillas, bean-side pressed
against the cheese. In a medium skillet on medium-
high heat, warm the olive oil, then cook the tortillas
one at a time until they’re golden brown on both
sides and the cheese is melted. Slice into quarters
and serve with fresh salsa on top and sour cream
on the side.
