Directions

  1. Brown and break up chorizo in skillet on medium heat. Drain, set aside, and wipe out skillet for the quesadillas.
  2. Use 1/2 tablespoon of oil for each quesadilla.
  3. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in skillet to medium or medium-high, depending on your burner. When the oil is glistening, it's ready. Don't wait until it smokes.
  4. Place a tortilla in the oil. Spread half with softened goat cheese and sprinkle chorizo to your liking and fold in half.
  5. Let brown for a minute or so, peeking often so as to not burn it.
  6. Carefully flip it over and brown the other side.
  7. Repeat with the other 3 tortillas and the rest of the cheese and sausage.
  8. Salud!
