Info
I had some tortillas I needed to use up, so I decided to try some new type of quesadilla. I decided where I’ve done beef, chicken, veggies and pork that lamb would be the something new. I found a recipe on about.com for a Mexican style lamb quesadilla cooked in the oven. The recipe called for using leftover lamb and I changed that to my grilling a top sirloin lamb, to which I’d applied a spicy rub. The quesadilla topping used a fresh cheese and fresh oregano and cilantro, plus , diced jalapenos and sauteed onions & garlic. The consistency was different than I’d ever done before: You didn’t sprinkle it on top, you spread it with a spatula. The quesadillas were tasty and were actually quite different than any quesadillas I’d made before. These are a great way to use a small portion of lamb, if you are looking for something a little different.
