How to Make Cheese Quesadillas on a Blackstone Griddle:

  • Step 5 – Serve and Enjoy – Remove the quesadillas onto a cutting board. Slice them and then they are ready to serve and enjoy. 

What temperature should a Griddle be for Quesadillas?

We recommend heating the griddle to about 400 degrees. Once you have heated the griddle, make sure to oil it with a high smoke point oil. This prevents the quesadilla from sticking.

How do you know when Quesadilla is done cooking?

Cooking quesadilla on the Blackstone does not take long, so you will need to watch it closely. You will notice the the melted cheese is holding the tortilla together. Which is a good indication that the quesadilla is done cooking.

The tortilla will be golden brown after a few minutes so make sure you remove promptly from the griddle. After cooking the quesadilla cut into wedges.

Can I Make on Stovetop?

Yes, you can make cheese quesadillas on your stovetop. We like using a cast iron skillet, but you can use any type of skillet.

Heat the skillet to medium heat and spray pan with oil. Place tortilla on skillet and top with cheese. Use spatulas to flip the tortilla so that it cooks both sides.

Once cooked, cut the tortilla in bite size pieces for everyone to enjoy.
