These quesadillas de flor de calabaza are very popular in Mexico. The bacon grease gives the quesadillas another level of tastiness plus they crisp up beautifully. If bacon grease is unavailable, feel free to use lard, oil, or butter.

  • Cook until tortillas are lightly browned and cheese starts to melt, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook until the other side is crispy, lightly browned, and the cheese has melted, 1 more minute.

Cook's Notes:

Mozzarella cheese can be used in place of Manchego cheese.

Any type of oil or butter can be used in place of bacon grease.

Any skillet can be used in place of the cast iron skillet.
