How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium bowl, mix together the cheese, mayonnaise and pimentos with a fork. Season with paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper.

Step 2    

Arrange 4 tortillas on a work surface and top each with pimento cheese. Place remaining 4 tortillas on top to make 4 quesadillas.

Step 3    

In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add the quesadillas and cook over moderately high heat until golden and crisp, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Add more oil to the pan if needed. Serve immediately.

Make Ahead
