Recipe Tips

  • Grill Temperature – Preheating the Blackstone grill to medium-high heat ensures that the tortillas will become crispy without burning during the cooking process, which is essential for making delicious
    quesadillas.
  • Shredded Cheese – For best results to melt the cheese, we recommend shredding the cheese from hunk cheese. Pre-shredding cheese has added ingredients.
  • Adding Ingredients – Make sure to not overfill the tortilla so the ingredients do not come out when cooking on the griddle.
