“If you like artichokes, you will LOVE these Artichoke Quesadillas. They are so simple to make and the taste is outstanding! They can be served as an appetizer or as a light lunch/dinner with rice and beans (or something else) on the side. This recipe is from azfamily.com.”

  1. With a food processor running, add the garlic clove through the feed tube until it is finely chopped.

  4. Arrange a few strips of chili over the cheese.
  5. Fold tortillas in half over the filling and brush both sides with some of the reserved artichoke marinade.
  6. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Put 2 to 3 quesadillas into the skillet and cook until lightly browned; turn over and cook until golden.
  8. Remove from skillet and cut into 4 to 6 wedges.
  9. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.
