My kiddo LOVES this one! I totally forgot about it...guess that is what happens when you go through your notebooks and hand written scribble to organize at the beginning of the year. I think we will do this as an after school snack this week when he goes back to school after winter break.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This is pretty simple -- layer the cheese, broccoli, bell pepper and cilantro on one tortilla add the other tortilla as if you are making a sandwich. Press firmly.
  2. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray over medium heat.
  3. Cook quesadilla until crisp and cheese is oozing out.
  4. Sometimes I have used a little less broccoli and added some left over baked potato or hash browns from breakfast.
  5. Cut into wedges and serve.
  6. You can scale down and use one tortilla, cook folded in half -- my 6-year son likes a bigger portion when he gets home from school 4 hours after lunch.
