Thursday Recipe - S'more Quesadillas

No, not "some more" quesadillas. S'more quesadillas. Sort of. More like s'more buneulos, but not quite either.

My command of Spanish is limited to names of foods and a few numbers and simple things like "buenos dias". Buneulos, according to the all-knowing Google, are fried dough balls, but I know them as crispy tortilla strips coated in cinnamon and sugar.

This recipe is a cross between s'mores, buneulos, and quesadillas. It's also delicious. And fast. And easy.

S'more Quesadillas

2 T. cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar
butter
flour tortillas
mini marshmallows

Mix cinnamon and sugar together. (I keep this mix in my cupboard at all times. It's amazing how fast it disappears at my house.) Set aside for now.

Heat some butter in a large frying pan over medium to medium low heat. Somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon will do it. You want to keep the heat on the lower side; butter burns easily if it gets too hot and burnt butter is not the flavor you want here. Fry a tortilla in the butter one to two minutes on the first side, just until it starts to turn golden brown. Flip it over. The toasted side should be coated with melted butter. Sprinkle it generously with the cinnamon sugar. Let the tortilla cook for another 1-2 minutes. Transfer it to a microwaveable plate.

Sprinkle about a dozen marshmallows over the cinnamon sugar. Microwave for 10-15 seconds just until the marshmallows melt. Fold it in half and serve.

Repeat as often as necessary. You could add in chocolate chips, too, to make it more like a s'more.
