I've been grilling a bunch. How 'bout you?
Most nights this week it's been simple stuff like hot dogs. Last night I made some jerk chicken thighs I wasn't too crazy about. If anyone wants to suggest a good recipe for that I"ll gladly accept.
A bit ago I also made this vegetable quesadilla, which is good enough to share.
I started with a recipe.. but switched it up a bit. The original recipe calls for just raw veggies folded in a tortilla and thrown on the grill.
Maybe on fancier grills the vegetables soften before the quesadilla chars to a crisp — but on the my el cheapo $99 apartment-sized charbroil gas grill the vegetables would barely be warm let alone soft.
So.. I sauteed them first. It was a good move on my part. Worked beautifully. You could also grill them first. I would've, but I'm not a very talented grillmaster and tend to lose the vegetables between the grates.
These don't have a lot going on — so the condiments are really important. Fine by me. You can really taste the vegetables, plus quesadillas are really just a method of putting salsa and sour cream into my mouth.
Get the recipe on Everyday Food. And, if you couldn't tell — I skipped the corn relish. I've been feeling a bit lazy lately. What can I say?
What have you been grilling?
