Quesadillas al Greco
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Surprise your taste buds with this Greek twist on the Mexican staple.”
1 teaspoon canola oil
3 ounces lean ground beef, ( ⅓ cup)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
4 8-inch tortillas, preferably whole-wheat
⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese, (2 ounces)
1Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add beef, garlic, cinnamon and oregano; cook, stirring, until the beef is no longer pink, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off fat; return the meat to the skillet. Stir in water and tomato paste; cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Season with pepper.
2Spread the meat on tortillas, dot with feta and fold each tortilla in half.
3Heat a large dry skillet over medium-high heat. Place two of the filled tortillas in the skillet and toast until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with the remaining filled tortillas. Cut each one into 4 wedges and serve hot.
