Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 300.
  2. Heat a medium soup pot over medium high heat. Add the vegetable oil and the jalapenos, bell peppers, onions, celery and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, then sauté the veggies for 5 minutes.
  3. Add all the tomatoes and stock and bring to a bubble. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir in the cilantro.
  4. Paint one side of 2 tortillas with oil and place them, oil side down, on a large cookie sheet.
  5. Mix the cheddar with the scallions and divide them between the tortillas evenly.
  6. Top with another tortilla and top each of these with equal amounts of pepper jack cheese.
  7. Set the last tortillas on top and brush the tops with oil.
  8. Bake the quesadillas for 10 minutes, and then cool for 5 minutes to set. Cut each into 6 wedges.
  9. Serve each bowl of stoup with 3 wedges of quesadilla and sour cream for topping either.
