Banana Quesadillas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by alijen

These are delicious dessert quesadillas! An Emeril recipe from his episode on tortillas. My young nephew loves these, but we did too! I serve drizzled with store-bought caramel sauce or chocolate sauce. This makes 10 servings, so you may want to scale down the recipe.

My family and I love these! We top them with honey instead of caramel sometimes and they're oh so yummy that way!!! You can shortcut the prep by using the ready made "Cheesecake Filling", although my kids think it's way better made from scratch.
