Grilled Cheese Quesadillas w/Chili Jam



For our version, we used a combination of sharp white cheddar cheese, queso oaxaca and queso manchego. I experimented with a delicious yet not too overly spicy homemade jalapeno jam a friend of mine made and also a trio of store bought but good quality berry-based red chili jams. From Lovoni Walker's 'GrillMaster'.
