Last night I stopped and picked up some burgers for the hubby to grill for dinner. Usually we make our own burgers but we had a long day full of yard work and sometimes pre-made is just the way to go.
I’m not all about beef burgers, so I whipped up a tasty little ‘dilla for myself! And let me tell ya, it was GOOD!
It all started with this corn and black bean salsa I made.
I made a big batch and took some over to my in-laws for a cookout we were having. My salsa is a bit different every time I make it, but for this batch I used two ears of sweet corn that I cooked on the grill, one can of no-salt added black beans, 2 small tomatoes, about 1/2 c red onion, several Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, the juice of one lime and two jalapenos. Since I made it the night before, it had plenty of time to develop a good flavor…and it was nice and spicy!
When I made my actual dilla, I started with some red pepper avocado slices.
Then I added some salsa and a little bit of cheese.
We picked up a new grill pan at Marshall’s this weekend that was much bigger than the one we had and I thought it’d be fun to see if I could grill the quesadilla and give it a nice crunchy crust.
The result? Delicious! It got a little messy because I don’t put much cheese in my quesadillas so they don’t always stick together as well as they could. But nonetheless, the dilla was darn delicious!
