This is a quick dinner idea when you need to make something fast! Just make these easy quesadillas for kids…

Take 4 (or more) whole wheat (or any kind that you prefer) tortillas

2 cups of your favorite shredded cheese (whatever you have at home)

Butter (you can use olive oil)

Make it tasty by including your favorite things…

You can include anything in this: onions, shredded chicken, black beans, spinach, crumbled bacon, avocado, cilantro…

Here is how you assemble it:

Heat up some butter in a pan over medium heat (or just put butter on your tortilla).

Put one tortilla, butter side down, in the hot pan, then put your cheese & chicken on it (in the center) leaving about an each all the way around.

Put your other toppings over the chicken and cheese.

You can sprinkle some cilantro over the top (YUM!) with a little salt, if you’d like.

Top off the quesadilla with the another buttered tortilla (buttered side facing up.)

When the bottom tortilla has browned, about 1 minute, flip the quesadilla over and grill the other side for the same amount of time.

Remove the quesadilla. Let it cool for a minute & slice it like a pizza- into triangle slices.

Serve with sour cream or salsa.

  1. I do my quesadillas on my George Forman grill. They come out perfect every time.
    Just make sure you seal the edges with a bit of water after you put your ingredients inside, Don’t overfill, Good luck and enjoy.
