    Nif's Note:

    Only 3 ingredients but my youngest DS loves it! Like the name says, it is very basic and is also very low maintenance. I would saute meat and/or veggies and have nonfat sour cream, salsa or guacamole to dip it in, but this is the basic-est version of the quesadilla. You can also use this as an appetizer and cut into thinner wedges. My DS can eat the whole thing now for dinner, but I thought I would list 2 servings. Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place one tortilla in a nonstick pan and set on stove with the burner off. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and taco seasoning.
    2. 2
      Turn heat to medium and place other tortilla on top. After about 5 minutes, gently lift edge of quesadilla to see if bottom tortilla is starting to brown. It should take a little longer, but keep a close eye on it. When it is a light golden colour, slide quesadilla on to a plate.
    3. 3
      Flip quesadilla into the pan and brown other side, checking frequently. Slide on to a cutting board. Let sit for a couple of minutes and then cut into quarters.

      Very basic but very good, nothing wrong with that! I used garlic powder and paprika.

      I love these simple quesadillas. To me they are so much better than the ones with a zillion things in them. They are also extremely kid-friendly. Thanks for posting!
