Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the sausage in the hot oil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, salsa, chili powder, pepper, garlic salt, and cumin; cook and stir until the garlic has mellowed, about 4 minutes. Place a tortilla onto a microwave-safe plate and top with the sausage mixture. Sprinkle with the shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

  • Cook the tortilla in the microwave on High until the cheese melts, 45 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the microwave. Sprinkle the tortilla chips on top of the melted cheese and top with the remaining tortilla. Butter both sides of the quesadilla and place in a clean skillet over medium heat. Cook until golden brown; flip and continue cooking until golden brown on the other side, about 4 minutes per side.

Very good. I didn't use olive oil since the sausage is greasy enough and I drained the fat before adding the other ingredients. Read More

I am of Polish descent and love eating kielbasa! I could eat it with cabbage all the time but my boyfriend isn't a fan. So I'm always trying to find some new vessel for the delicious sausage. This was far better than I had dared hope it would be. It seemed such a weird combination but it definitely works! I'm just not sure that adding the crushed tortillas had much effect. Maybe I made them too small to give the quesadilla any crunch.... Read More

This is a good recipe but of course I did not have all the ingredients and had to improvise. I cut the sausage into small pieces to help them cook faster. I did not have salsa so I used stewed tomatoes and added a quarter cup of water covered and simmered the sausage until done. My tortilla chips were taco shells heated and crunched up. But we ate every sinful bite. I would make it again because it was tasty without being too hot. Read More

Excellent recipe I did add some onion and a little more Cumin and I used ground sausage. I didn't have salsa so I added some fresh tomatos and a little tomatoe juice. Thought it needed a sauce so I put a homemade enchilada sauce on it with some grated cheese on top. Husband says its a definate repeat! Read More
