Kogi BBQ Kimchi Quesadillas

8 tablespoons Real California butter

2 cups kimchi, chopped

4 tablespoons canola oil

4 (12-inch) flour tortillas

4 cups Real California shredded Cheddar-Jack cheese

8 sesame (shiso) leaves, torn

4 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds

In sauté pan, melt butter; add kimchi and cook over medium heat until caramelized and charred. Oil a sauté pan or griddle and heat over medium heat. Place 1 tortilla on pan and spread 1 cup cheese evenly on one half of the tortilla. Cover cheese with 1/2 cup kimchi and sprinkle with 2 sesame leaves and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds. Fold over other half of tortilla to make a half circle. Cook until browned on the bottom, flip and continue cooking until browned and blistered on both sides like a Neapolitan pizza. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 quesadillas.
