We love quesadillas around our house. They are pretty versatile when you think about it; you can stuff them with multiple varieties of ingredients and dip them in any number of sauces. When I recently came across this Quesadilla Ring, we had to give it a try. Besides the taste and versatility, this is a pretty fun appetizer to put out at your next party and “wow” your guests.
For my first try, I grabbed my That’s My Pan pie pan and made Chicken Quesadillas. Here is what I used:
3 cooked, shredded chicken breasts
1 lb Fiesta Blend shredded cheese
bacon bits (amount varies by personal taste)
20 pack bag of small Flour Tortillas (I used 17)
Jar of your favorite salsa
In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded chicken, 1 cup shredded cheese and 3 – 4 Tablespoons bacon bits.
Mix until evenly combined.
Grab a tortilla, cut down the center and put a thin layer of filling on each half. Then roll starting from cut end as in photo below.
Once you have rolled a few, start placing them in the pie pan. I used a juice glass turned upside down in the middle of the pan to shape the ring.
When you get the first layer finished, top it off with a generous sprinkling of cheese.
Repeat the process until you either run out of stuffing or feel like it’s big enough:) I ended up with 3 layers. Sprinkle more cheese over the whole tower.
Carefully remove the glass from the center of the ring and bake in oven @ 350 for about 10-15 minutes or until lightly toasted and cheese is melted.
Remove from oven.
Place salsa in a bowl that will fit your ring. (I used the juice glass turned right side up)
When the ring cools a bit, place the salsa in the middle then pull and eat!
That’s some fun food! Your pie pan is not just for pie, am I right? If you try it, be sure to tell us how it turned out in the comments.
