Quesadillas Recipe
  • In a large, non-stick skillet, melt butter or spray with no-stick cooking oil.
  • Lay tortilla flat in the prepared skillet over medium high heat. 
  • Place desired fillings to cover 1/2 of the flat tortilla. When cheese begins to melt, fold over the tortilla and continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly browned.
  • Remove from pan. The quesadilla can be cut into 3 triangles and garnished as desired.
  • Quesadillas, with filling, can be folded in half and placed in a 350º F oven until cheese has melted.
  • Filling suggestions: fresh mushrooms, corn, black beans, black olives, cooked and cubed meats.
