Cacique® Quesadilla Cook-Off, Round 1: “Chorizo & Potato” or “The Triple Decker”


Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching, and we’re kicking off the fiesta at Cacique® with our favorite food: crispy, cheesy, and deliciously irresistible Quesadillas! To spice things up for our favorite holiday, we’ve asked some of our favorite food bloggers from across the country to add their own creative twists to this classic Mexican dish. Starting off with nothing but authentic Cacique® cheese and their own culinary imagination, our bloggers will present their recipes so you can throw the ultimate Cinco de Mayo party.

Let the Cacique® Quesadilla Cook-Off begin!

First up is the “Chorizo & Potato” Quesadilla from Vianney Rodriguez of Sweet Bake Life. This breakfast-inspired quesadilla features Cacique® Bolita Chorizo, potatoes, and a spicy Ranchero® dipping sauce. We loved her approach to starting the day with a savory and flavor-packed meal that is sure to give you the energy you need to celebrate Cinco de Mayo all day long. Pairing the Quesadilla with her Spicy Ranchero® Dipping sauce definitely brought this quesadilla to a whole new level of awesome.

Next up, we have the mouth-watering “Triple-decker Quesadilla” from Kathy Murillo of Crafty Chica. Kathy’s Quesadillas feature three layers of crispy tortillas stuffed with both Cacique® Queso Fresco and Cacique® Queso Quesadilla cheeses.
