Recipe of the Month: Roasted Corn Quesadilla

Posted in Our Cheese

We've done it again! This month we came up with a new quesadilla recipe we think you will enjoy. This is an easy and quick meal with veggies. The sweet corn, spicy salsa and cheesy garlic jack are super yummy together. We used Rumiano Garlic Jack Cheese but you are welcome to use any Rumiano Cheese you might have on hand.

Let us know when you make this and what you think. We would love to hear from you. Share your photos on social media using the hashtag #rumianocheese
