To continue on with my Mexican Fiesta noche, I decided to make sweet apple quesadillas, which I found the recipe for on the tortilla package! These actually turned out quite good, though the last one I made, the pan got a bit too hot and I set off the smoke alarm... again. Luckily, it didn't go off for the whole building!Also, as a side note, I would add more sugar next time; the recipe called for apple pie filling, but I used real apples, and didn't add enough sugar to make it sweet enough. Also, the recipe called for Mexican shredded cheese, but I used cottage cheese to make it less salty. Oh well, buenos noches!
|For real, I didn't do this on purpose, but it's awesome.|
|The apples, cooking away!|
|Apple, raisin, sugar, and cinnamon mixture!|
|Cottage cheese, added!|
|Yum! (The darkest one is the one that set off the fire alarm.)|
|Sweet Apple Quesadilla!|
2 apples, chopped small
1/2 cup raisins
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup cottage cheese
4 small tortilla shells
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Place small saucepan over medium heat. Add apples, raisins, sugar, and cinnamon. Cook until apples are soft, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a small frying pan, add oil. After hot, add one tortilla to oil. Place about two Tbsp. of apple mixture and 1 Tbsp. cottage cheese to half of the tortilla. Fold tortilla over itself. Flip. Cook until golden brown.
