Print Recipe
6 sincronizadas Sincronizadas de Jamon con Queso
Ingredients
  • 12 Flour tortillas
  • safflower or corn oil optional
  • 8 ounces Chihuahua, Oaxaca, Monterey Jack, Muenster, or melty cheese of your choice
  • 6 to 12 thin slices ham or turkey
  • Mexican avocado slices optional
  • salsa of your choice
To Prepare
  • Heat a non-stick sauté pan or a comal over medium heat. Place a couple flour tortillas, many as will fit in the pan or comal, top with a generous amount of shredded cheese and one or two slices of ham or turkey. Cover with a second flour tortilla.
  • Heat until the flour tortillas in the bottom become lightly toasted and cheese starts melting. With the help of a spatula, flip them to the other side and let it heat and crisp a bit. I like to wait until the cheese oozes out, browns and crisps a little! Transfer to a plate and slice in half or quarters.
  • Serve with a salsa of your choice and slices of ripe avocado on the side.

    This was the first episode I watched, and I decided I will be a regular viewer from now on. I loved the comparison of quesadillas to grilled cheese sandwiches. This ham and cheese sincronizada will become a favorite, I’m sure!
