Quesadillas are a terrific quick snack to feed the family. They're also great served alongside chili or southwestern stews.

Instructions Checklist
  • Spread 1 ounce cheese on a tortilla. Top with another tortilla and place in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the bottom is lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Turn over and cook until the cheese is melted and the second side is lightly toasted. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and the remaining cheese to make 4 quesadillas altogether. Cut each into quarters and serve with salsa.

I use whole wheat tortillas whenever possible. They are lower in fat and carbs so you get more fiber and less calories plus you don't feel deprived of a cheesy treat. Dawn Woodbury MN Read More
