Quesadillas for One or Two

Quesadillas for One or Two created by Derf2440

Nice quick lunch for yourself or for you and your honey. Recipe can be cut in half to make for one. We like to add 1 or 2 of the variations, there's always something left over in the fridge to be used up, use your imagination. (the oil can be replaced with veggie cooking spray, it works just as well) Our standard is deli chicken slices, a mix of cheddar and parmesan, green pepper sticks, and chopped green onions and fresh cilantro, served with hot salsa. Yummy!!!

    Awesome recipe - everyone loved the green chillies, and I never would have thought to add them. Great base and variation suggestions! Thanks, I'll def be using again!

    Great basic recipe! I did a skinny version using whole wheat tortillas and 2% monterey jack cheese. I was doing a bit of a tex-mex theme, so I threw in some olives, salsa and served it wtih guac and sour cream. Great!

    I made these for my DH's lunch last week. He "gets tired of sandwiches", so I thought this would be a good alternative for him. I added the optional chicken, sour cream and salsa. Thanks for making lunch packing easier for me!!

    These were sooo yummy and easy to make. I really appreciated the versatility of the recipe, too; both vegetarians and meat lovers were easily pleased with basically the same meal. (My daughter loved her quesadillas with the refried beans; my husband raved about his with the added roasted chicken.) Next time, I'll try this with cooking spray and with low-fat cheese and sour cream in an effort to cut the amount of fat down. This recipe is definitely one I'll be making often! Thanks so much, Derf!
