Sriracha Quesadillas

 

Sriracha Quesadillas

My husband Ben came up with this Sriracha quesadillas recipe a while ago, as a snack he quickly whipped up during one of our movie nights (he’s also a big fan of instant ramen noodles). Thin like crepes, the tortillas are crispy, hiding a soft and gooey center complemented with a punch of heat from the sri racha. Dip these in Morimoto’s wasabi avocado dip for extra wow factor.
 
Hint: Just like for crepes, the trick to not burning the outside of the tortilla is to only use a little butter or oil, just enough to coat the pan (too much of it will burn too quickly and result in a cold center and burned exterior).
