I was chatting with Michael from Chocosol yesterday and he informed me that a) they’re now making fresh tortillas and b) they make chocolate and cheese quesadillas at some (all?) of their market stalls. Not wanting to wait until my next market trip – and with a stash of Chocosol chocolate he’d given me – I tried to recreate them at home. Chocosol chili chocolate, Fifth Town/Black River goat cheddar, and not-local tortillas from frozen.
The verdict? Decent first attempt – the chocolate melted really nicely – but I can do better. My tortilla was a little stale and the goat cheddar doesn’t melt much, so it didn’t mix in with the chocolate very well. I think next time I’ll try spreading a soft cheese like chevre on the tortilla before adding the chocolate for a better blend.
Have you made chocolate quesadillas? Any tips?Read More
