I am not a big fan of sweet breakfast, so when we got a new cafe in town that served unique twists on breakfast, I was so excited. I tried their breakfast quesadilla, loved it and started making it at home for Hayden and I.
2 flour tortillas
1 tsp of milk
1/2 tomato, diced
1 tsp of chives, roughly chopped
1 tbsp of cilantro leaves
1/4 cup of grated jack cheese
1 slice of bacon or turkey bacon, cooked and broken up into pieces (optional)
salsa (I like fire roasted tomato salsa)
1. Heat griddle and lay one tortilla on top. Cover with cheese, tomatoes, chives, cilantro and bacon.
2. Lightly beat egg with milk and cracked pepper. Slowly pour egg onto tortilla in the center, letting is creep to edges. Cover with second tortilla. Flip after the egg begins to set. Cook until egg is done and cheese is melted. Severe with black beans and salsa on the side.
Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa
1 yellow onion
1/2 bunch of cilantro
salt and pepper
1. Roast tomatoes, jalapeno and onions on grill or on griddle
2. Puree with cilantro until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
