Grilled Peach and Cherry Tomato Quesadillas
My roommate has been traveling a lot for work over the past few weeks, which has allowed me to reconnect with my “cooking for one” roots.
While dining with the Dude is awesome in so many ways (I live for this type of reaction to my food), I definitely don’t hate the solo dinner thing I’ve been doing recently. It’s kind of refreshing to make and eat whatever I want, while enjoying some quality time watching reality TV and reading teen novels with my deep and creative thoughts.
On the whole, Logan and I eat well together, but I know better than to give him a kale salad, goddess bowl, or vegetarian quesadilla at his pm feeding. As entertaining as it is to watch him transform from human dude to raging hulk, I prefer to avoid the, “You’re always trying to starve me!! WHERE’S THE MEAT??!!” meltdown when possible. It’s easier just to throw some Dude Diet-friendly chicken/sausage/steak at him and call it a day.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m far from vegetarian (duh), but my bod doesn’t need meat every night, and I get pretty pumped to enjoy a meatless feast sans man tantrum every once in a while. Especially when it’s something as delightful as a Grilled Peach and Cherry Tomato Quesadilla…
Lightly caramelized peaches and onions, bursting cherry tomatoes, and fiery pepper jack cheese make for a truly magical summer flavor party, friends. They successfully hit the sweet-spicy-savory trifecta, and the subtle smokiness that comes from grilling both the fillings and the ‘dillas themselves? Next level.
Please get on this recipe STAT before all the peaches and tomatoes disappear and we’re forced to retire our grill(pan) and enter the land of pumpkin spice. Blergh.
I happily crushed these quesadillas for lunch and dinner multiple times last week, but they’d also make excellent finger food for your late summer soirées. You can even prep these babies in advance (it shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes), and then just throw them on the grill come fiesta time. Slice each crispy ‘dilla into small triangles, get some fresh guac involved, and you’re good to go.
I assume you were already planning to serve margaritas with these, but if not…you should probably serve margaritas with these.
*I’ve already told you how much I dig Peapod, but as a refresher, it’s a game-changing service that saves you precious time by delivering all of your grocery needs (including the goods for these quesadillas).
