Smoked Salmon Quesadillas

I made some homemade smoked salmon with my new smoker the other day so of course I wanted to put it into a meal. I found this recipe and modified it slightly for our needs. Great for a meal or for an appetizer.

Tortillas (flour, whole wheat, corn, gluten free....whatever you like)

6 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 tsp dill
1/2 tsp lemon juice
3-4 rings pickled jalapeno(more or less for your spiciness preference)
salt and pepper to taste

Other Toppings:

Smoked Salmon
Shredded cheese.....cheddar, swiss, provolone, monterrey jack.....lots of options

Place all the filling ingredients in a small food processor and process until smooth and creamy (you can do this by hand too of course, I just prefer the processor)

Cover and allow flavors to mingle at least 30 minutes.

Heat a griddle or pan to medium and  butter 1 side of each tortilla. Place tortilla butter side down on the hot griddle and spread with a TB or more of the cream cheese mix. Sprinkle with smoked salmon and shredded cheese. Place another tortilla butter side up on top. Cook for 3-5 minutes until the cheese is starting to melt and the tortilla is turning golden brown. Flip and cook 3-5 minutes more until fully melted and the bottom is golden too.

Allow to set for 2-3 minutes before slicing.
