Q is for Quesadilla

This is one of the easiest "recipes" I will be giving you.  This is  one of our "fast food" recipes that we use at lunch.  We only have about thirty-five minutes for lunch by the time we take into account our travel time from work.  It is good and quick and simple.


2 tortillas
grated cheddar cheese
olive oil
leftover chicken or some back bacon cooked in microwave (optional)

Heat the frying pan over medium low heat.  Put a very small amount of olive oil in and swish around.

Place one tortilla on into the pan and top with grated cheddar - keep at least 1/2 inch away from edge.

Warm the chicken or bacon that has been cut into slivers  in the microwave and add on top of cheddar.

Top with second tortilla.   Heat until slightly browned and the cheese starts melting.  Carefully flip over and brown the other side.

Cut into 8 wedges and serve on a plate with a bowl of salsa.



  1. Yum, yum, yum... I think even I could handle this one!

  2. I love quesadillas, but I've never done them on the stove top. You learn something new every day. This might be for lunch today.

  3. Oh wow, I can't believe we are already up to the letter R. I really missed the boat! I just got really busy recently. I love your theme of recipes, I was going to do the same thing. I probably should have went with it, then I could have kept up with it. I cook all the time. I ran out of time and ideas. Thanks for stopping by, nice to meet you!

  4. Awesome! I always wondered how to make a Quesadilla. :-)
