Tomato and Cheese Quesadilla

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

A very easy to make lunch. If following a gluten free diet ensure gluten-free corn tortillas are used. You can make these in your frypan or flat sandwich toaster (the type that does not cut your bread). You can also add cooked shredded chicken, ham, avocado,onion, capsicums/peppers, herbs, salsa, chilli sauce-basically any ingredients that you would like in a toasted sandwich.


  1. Place one tortilla on a plate.
  2. Spread the sliced tomato over the tortilla and then the shredded cheese. I usually leave 1 inch around the edges of the tortilla free as it tends to spread when being cooked and cut.
  3. Top with the remaining tortilla.
  4. Place onto a lightly cooking oil sprayed frypan or sandwich toaster. If using the frypan you will need to flip over the quesadilla after a couple of minutes.
  5. Once the filling has warmed and the tortillas lightly toasted-it's done.
  6. Wait a minute and then carefully slice through and enjoy.

This is all you need in a great quesadilla! Simple and delicious! I used corn tortillas and it was a bit messy while cooking, but worked out in the end. YUMMY stuff!

So yummy. Before cooking it, I decided to add ranch dressing in it. It was so good. Perfect with the tomato and cheese. It was a great light lunch. Thanks Jubes :) Made for I Recommend tag game

Simple, fresh and delicious! I will definitely be repeating this recipe. I don't know why I had never thought of this combination for a quesadilla. It's wonderful! Made for the Sept. 2010 Aussie/NZ Swap.
