We've been thinking of ways to make quesadillas in our dorm, and have thought through a variety of techniques: from mixing melted cheese with beans and pouring them over a tortilla, to wrapping a pre-assembled quesadilla in aluminum foil and holding it against the side of the kettle. Sadly, none of these techniques were able to successfully melt the cheese and heat up the entire tortilla.
However, when we added the steamer method to our repertoire of kettle tricks, we realized that we finally could make perfect dorm room quesadillas! We assembled small quesadillas and wrapped them tightly with aluminum foil, then placed the packets in our steamer and used the hot steam to warm the quesadillas all at once.
These quesadillas are perfect: bite sized, with a gooey center. They are best eaten when hot, fresh from the steamer!
4. Wrap quesadilla with aluminum foil: press foi, down from edges, fold over half of center piece, fold again and press onto center, fold edges up and press onto center.
5. Place in steamer and cover top of steamer with aluminum foil
6. Put steamer over boiling water for 5 minutes
7. Remove quesadilla from steamer, take out of foil and munch.
8. Repeat steps 2-7 for second half of tortilla.
