Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/2 lime, cut into wedges
  • 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa
  • 2 Serrano peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Instructions

  • 1Preheat a countertop panini-style grill (like a George Foreman). Alternatively, preheat a large, heavy grill pan over medium-low heat for 15 minutes.
  • 2Lay tortillas on a flat surface and sprinkle ¼ cup of the cheese on the bottom half of each one, leaving space around the edges. Scatter peppers and cayenne evenly over cheese and fold over to form a half-circle.
  • 3Cut the folded half in half, and brush both sides of tortillas with oil.
  • 4Place on grill one at a time and lightly tamp down lid (if using a countertop grill). Flip and rotate half-way through to achieve hatched, griddled marks (about 2 minutes per side).
  • 5Serve immediately with salsa, sour cream and limes for passing.
