Muenster Quesadillas with Onion Jam and Smoked Paprika
Recipe for one quesadilla (that is easily replicated)

2 8-inch tortillas
1/4 – 1/2 cup grated Muenster cheese (as desired)
1 1/2 tbsp onion jam
smoked sweet paprika, as desired
ground cayenne, as desired

To serve: sour cream, cayenne (for sprinkling), roasted tomato salsa

Heat a large nonstick pan on medium heat. Evenly spread desired amount of grated Muenster cheese on one tortilla. Gently dollop little bits of onion jam around the tortilla. Sprinkle this evenly with desired amount of smoked paprika and cayenne. Top with other tortilla and transfer to saucepan. Cover to allow cheese to melt, cooking the first side until golden brown and slightly crisp, about 3 minutes. Gently flip and brown the other side, another 1-2 minutes. Slice into quarters and serve with sour cream sprinkled with cayenne and roasted tomato salsa.

    These really are comfort food Kelsey!! I never thought of onion jam. And maybe I could use the Trader Joe’s pepper jam too. WE are quesadilla eaters here and you’re making me expand my cheddar horizons! thanks.
