4 Schnucks large eggs
1/4 cup Schnucks vitamin D whole milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Schnucks unsalted butter, divided
3 green onions, thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup)
1 medium jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and minced
4 (8-inch) medium soft taco flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Schnucks hot pepper Jack cheese, divided
1/2 cup Schnucks medium chunky salsa
1/4 cup Schnucks sour cream

  1. In large bowl, with whisk, lightly beat eggs with milk, cumin, salt and pepper. In nonstick 12-inch skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add onions and jalapeño and cook 3 minutes or until onions are tender, stirring frequently. Pour egg mixture into skillet and cook 3 minutes or until eggs are cooked through, stirring occasionally to scramble.

Working quickly, on each tortilla, evenly spread 1/4 cup cheese, half of egg mixture and 1/4 cup cheese. Place remaining 2 tortillas over cheese. Cook quesadillas 4 to 6 minutes or until tortillas are golden and cheese melts, turning quesadillas once halfway through cooking. To serve, cut each quesadilla into wedges. Top with salsa and sour cream.
