QUESADILLA STACK--BONNIE'S

I was hungry for something different, and created this Quesadilla Stack with what I had on hand in my fridge. You won't even miss the fact that this recipe doesn't contain meat! However, you could certainly add some cooked steak or chicken to it, if you wish. So grab a fork and napkins and dig in! Things may get messy. You could even share this Quesadilla Stack with someone you love, but trust me, you won't want to share, so make two of them! Enjoy!

Photos are my own and so is this humble recipe.

1Cook's Note: A word about corn tortillas. They are not all the same. I use the La Banderita brand because it is a very soft, white, corn tortilla that is very pliable and doesn't break -- so pliable it can be used for wraps without heating. It gets crispy, and it is never tough when fried.

2Assemble all the ingredients before you begin and do the prep work before you fry the tortillas.

3Prep the veggies and cheese. Dice the avocado. Finely dice the red onion, and cut each cherry tomato in half, then cut each half in half, drain the tomatoes very well on paper towels until no liquid remains. Grate the cheese.

4Pour olive oil just to cover the bottom of a small skillet and heat until hot but not smoking. You should have just enough oil that when you put the tortilla in the oil it is not submerged.

5Fry the corn tortilla on both sides until light golden brown. Don't over fry. You want it crispy, not tough.

6Blot the cooked tortilla with paper towels and immediately sprinkle each fried tortilla lightly with kosher salt. Keep it covered and warm, until you have cooked three tortillas to make your stack.
