Fusion Food is always fun to try. Around the house we mix and match ideas pretty often. Every now and then one of those ideas makes it on here. This particular idea we heard about listening to NPR. The talked about a Vietnamese taco truck that is very popular in California. The mentioned a few items on the menu including Kimchi Quesadillas. Zo and I both said we have to try those one day. Now over a year later we finally got around to trying them out and man are the good! We did not know how they made them on the taco truck so we just put them together how we would. Take a chance on these! You will not be disappointed!

Ingredients:
Quesadillas
2 tbsp Spicy Kimchi
green onion (chopped)
1/4 of a jalapeno (seeded and diced)
1/4 cup Aged jack cheese (shredded)
1/2 cup Aged Extra sharp cheddar (shredded)
1 tsp sweet European Butter
2 8 inch tortillas (we use partially cooked tortillas)

Sauce
1 1/2 tsp Sriracha
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp soy sauce
1/8 tsp powdered ginger
2 cloves garlic (minced)

Quesadillas
In a 10 inch skillet heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add Kimchi, onions and jalapeno to skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes. Remove all ingredients onto a small plate and site aside.

Sauce
Add garlic to the now empty skillet and cook for 4-6 minutes until browned, then place garlic in a small bowl. Add the remaining sauce ingredients to the bowl and stir until mixed well. Sit the sauce in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Quesadillas Continued
Turn the heat on the skillet down to medium low. Lay out both of your tortillas and evenly distributed the Kimchi mixture over them. Now mix the cheeses and evenly divided it between both tortillas. Wipe your skillet out with a paper towel (being careful not to burn yourself.) Fold both tortillas in half and add them both to the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip the tortillas and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes or until all cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy.

Slice into 3-4 pieces and serve hot with the sauce. Get ready for some good eats! Fusion food does not get much better!
