  1. Drain kimchi and roughly chop.
  2. Add butter to a large skillet over medium-high heat. When melted, add kimchi.
  3. Cook and stir for about 6 minutes until the edges of the kimchi start to turn a golden brown. Transfer to a bowl and let it cool down.
  4. Add the kimchi, cheese, and sesame seeds to a tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half.
  5. Pour oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the quesadilla for about two minutes on each side, or until the tortilla has turned a golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  6. Serve with a garnish of diced green onions and sesame seeds. Slice into quarters.
  7. NOTE: Experiment with proteins by adding beef, pork, or chicken to the quesadillas. For even more of a Korean influence, try adding Korean BBQ-style proteins!
  8. Enjoy!
