Tips for making this recipe:

  • If you don't have an immersion blender, you can ladle a cup of the soup into a blender and blend until smooth. Add back into the pot.
  • I like to use melted butter to brush the pan and the top of the quesadilla, but you can use olive oil too.
  • Don't turn the heat on to the pan for the quesadilla until you've built it.
