Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion -- diced
1 green pepper -- diced
1 red pepper -- diced
1 clove garlic -- minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro -- *I prefer Ital. parsley
12 8-inch flour tortilla -- 6 to 7 inch
6 ounces monterey jack cheese with jalapeno chilies -- shredded
Cilantro leaves, whole -- for garnish
1 hot pepper -- for garnish

In a non-stick 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and peppers and cook , stirring often, 15 minutes or until golden and tender. Add garlic, cumin, and salt, and cook 5 minutes longer, stirring often. Remove skillet from heat; stir in cilantro (or parsley).

Place 6 tortillas on work surface. Spread pepper mixture on tortillas; sprinkle with cheese. Top with remaining tortillas to make 6 quesadillas. Cover well (so they don't dry out) and refrigerate assembled quesadillas up to 6 hours before serving.

To complete:
Preheat oven to 450F. Place quesadillas on 2 large cookie sheets and bake 8 minutes, or until lightly browned on both sides, turning over once during cooking time. Remove from oven to cutting board; cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges. Top each wedge with a cilantro leaf (or parsley sprig) for garnish. Garnish platter with a hot red pepper. Serve immediately. Makes 48 wedges.
