Have you ever eaten something that sounded really gross but ended up being delicious? Follow this recipe to make apple-jack quesadillas. A weird sounding food that tastes great!


4 teaspoons EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil)

4 tablespoons pepper jelly

4 (10- to 12-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or pepper Jack cheese

1 McIntosh apple, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced


Preheat a teaspoon of the EVOO in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spread 1 tablespoon of pepper jelly on a tortilla and place it in the pan, jelly side up. Cover half the tortilla with about 1/2 cup cheese and 1/4 of the apple slices. Fold the naked half of the tortilla over and cook for a couple of minutes on each side until the quesadilla is brown and crispy and the cheese is melted. Keep in the oven while you make 3 additional quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla in 4 wedges and serve.
