  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese – monterey jack, pepperjack, cheddar, asadero, provolone, any cheese like that that melts well
  • Fillings of choice:
  • 12 tablespoons pico de gallo, onion, or cilantro
  • 1/4 cup cooked chicken, beef, or pork (or shrimp!)
  • 12 tablespoons cooked beans, black or pinto
  • 1/4 cup sauteed sweet potato or zucchini and/or peppers


  1. Lay the tortillas out flat.
  2. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of cheese on one half of each tortilla.
  3. Spread out fillings of choice over the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over the fillings, dividing between the two tortillas.
  5. Fold over and press down lightly.
  6. Heat slowly in a skillet until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisp. Flip and brown the other side over a higher heat.
  7. Remove and let cool a minute before slicing each into 2-4 triangles.
  8. Serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole


Quesadillas can be filled with any vegetable or meat you have. They’re a great way to use up leftovers or produce that’s a little past its prime.
