My Very Favorite Quesadillas

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

I love these! Obviously, I don't make 4 at a time - more like 12, but you get the idea, the more tortillas, the more ingredients. I like to top these with Mock Sour Cream, which I have posted,and some fresh,chopped tomato.(and maybe a little of that leftover cilantro...)


  1. Arrange 1/3 cup of cheese, 1 tbl. green onion, 1 teaspoons chopped chilies, and 1 tbl. of cilantro on one half of each tortilla. Fold tortilla over filling.
  2. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray, and set heat to high. Add quesadillas and cook and flip till tortilla is browned and cheese has melted
  3. If you prefer, you can also brush the tortillas with oil and bake in the broiler until cheese melts, turning once.

Easy, simple to make and good. A recipe you can play with. Made for MEP's cookathon. Rest in peace dear Mary Ellen.

Good, easy and versatile...that's a great combo. I did not use any cilantro since I loathe it, but otherwise made as written except for a bit of shredded cheddar added with the meunster. I foresee lots of variations with this recipe.

Easy to make and easy to eat too. I used whole grain tortillas. Made for the cookathon.
