Got Football?

It's been a pretty darn good year for Wisconsin sports. Although I won't lie, the fact that the Cardinals took the World Series is killing me stings a bit. BUT the Packers are right back where they finished last season - winning games and taking names. What are you doing tonight? How about a little football???

There are so many great plays in this, but I LOVE Clay Matthews at about 1:33

But who can watch football without snacks? And since we're watching Wisconsin vs. Minnesota, there HAS to be cheese involved. (I recommend deep fried cheese curds whenever you can get them, but since I've never made them, let's go with this) (then again, yesterday at a salad bar, I topped a piece of french bread with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and bacon bits, so obviously I'm not picky about my snacks) Enjoy!

Super Easy Quesadillas
4 soft-shell tortillas (either spray with cooking spray or brushed with melted butter)
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or a cheddar/jack mix or for the adventurous, pepper jack
jalapeno slices (optional)
1/2 cup shredded chicken or smoked turkey (optional but highly recommended)

Place 2 tortillas side-by-side on cookie sheet. Top each with remaining ingredients and put another tortilla on top of each. Broil in oven, 5-6 inches from the heat for 3 minutes per side until golden brown and nice and cheesy. (I think you could also bake at 350 for 15 minutes, but haven't tried it) Provide salsa and sour cream for dipping.

OH and I can't forget - if you need Christmas presents for people you love, give cheese. Yes, cheese. Christy's inlaws can totally hook you up. Go here and try not to drool: Springside Cheese


  1. It's like a Wisconsin vs Minnesota week. First the Badgers beat the Gophers and tonight the Packers will trounce the Vikings. Life is good for the cheesehead state. I'm disappointed the Badgers won't be playing my beloved Wolverines this season (and a little glad they aren't - because they'd kick our butts this year).

    Those quesadillas sound yummy. I've done something like that before but with olives and diced tomatoes, too. Mmmm.

  2. I love quesadillas and football! I'll have to try this recipe, soon... My team didn't play this weekend but they won a big game last Thursday!
