    Serves: 1 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 link kielbasa (Polish sausage), cut into 1 cm pieces
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons salsa
    • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
    • 1 pinch cumin
    • 1 1/2 cups (185g) grated Cheddar cheese
    • 2 large flour tortillas
    • 1/2 cup slightly crushed corn chips
    • 1 tablespoon softened butter

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook the sausage in the hot oil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, salsa, chilli powder, pepper, garlic salt and cumin; cook and stir until the garlic has mellowed, about 4 minutes. Place a tortilla onto a microwave-safe plate and top with the sausage mixture. Sprinkle with the grated cheese.
    2. Cook the tortilla in the microwave on High until the cheese melts, 45 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the microwave. Sprinkle the corn chips on top of the melted cheese and top with the remaining tortilla. Butter both sides of the quesadilla and place in a clean frypan over medium heat. Cook until golden brown; flip and continue cooking until golden brown on the other side, about 4 minutes per side. Cut into quarters to serve.

    Very good. I didn't use olive oil since the sausage is greasy enough, and I drained the fat before adding the other ingredients.  -  06 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am of Polish descent, and love eating kielbasa! I could eat it with cabbage all the time, but my boyfriend isn't a fan. So, I'm always trying to find some new vessel for the delicious sausage. This was far better than I had dared hope it would be. It seemed such a weird combination, but it definitely works! I'm just not sure that adding the crushed tortillas had much effect. Maybe I made them too small to give the quesadilla any crunch. . . .  -  21 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe, I did add some onion and a little more Cumin, and I used ground sausage. I didn't have salsa so I added some fresh tomatos and a little tomatoe juice. Thought it needed a sauce so I put a homemade enchilada sauce on it with some grated cheese on top. Husband says its a definate repeat!  -  03 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
