Quesalentas

November 30, 2014

It’s like a quesadilla, but with polenta instead of tortillas…get it? Quesadillas (cheese + tortillas), quesalentas (cheese + polenta).  I thought it was clever. But more importantly, it’s a way to use up polenta if you made a lot, like with this recipe for Slow Cooker Polenta.

I had leftover polenta refrigerated in a small round container until firm, turned the polenta out onto a plate, and sliced it horizontally into rounds (quite a bit thicker than tortillas). I heated the rounds in a frying pan with a little oil, then once they were starting to color a little, I put a slice of pepper jack cheese between 2 rounds and cooked a little longer to melt the cheese. With some sour cream mixed with a little chipotle powder on the side, it was a tasty little lunch.
