From the Test Kitchen

Chefs, it’s hard to improve upon the simple combination of crispy tortillas and melted cheese—but a layer of hearty greens and a topping of fried eggs does the job. Our quesadillas feature the flavors of white cheddar and Mexican-spiced kale (we’re using a warming blend that includes ancho and chipotle chile powders). Thin-sliced radishes give the dish a classic touch of refreshing contrast.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Quarter the lime. Grate the cheese. Cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.

Cook the kale:
2 Cook the kale:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the garlic and kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the kale is slightly wilted. Add ¼ cup of water and up to 3/4 of the spice blend, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the kale has wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the tortillas on a clean, dry work surface. Divide half the cheese between 2 of the tortillas; top with the cooked kale and remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the quesadillas and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the tortillas are browned and the cheese has melted. Divide between 2 dishes; immediately season with salt. Set aside in a warm place.
