Quick, Kid-Friendly Quesadillas

Easy Mexican Snack or Meal

Kids love quesadillas. Here is how to make simple cheese quesadillas. It is vital to heat the tortillas in a pan on the stove, rather than in the microwave. Start with just three basic ingredients but be sure to add any other ingredients the kids in your care love including chicken, steak, and vegetables to add nutrition.

You Will Need:

Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese or Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas
Cooking Spray

(Optional Ingredients)
Mild Salsa
Sour Cream
Brown Rice

What to Do:

1. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat for about one-minute then coat the pan with cooking spray.
2. Add a tortilla and let it heat for about 30-seconds, than flip the tortilla to the other side.
3. Sprinkle about a half cup of shredded cheese to just one half of the tortilla. Then add any other ingredients you would like to be hot such as chicken and peppers. (Save cold toppings such as sour cream, guacamole, and salsa for later).
4. Fold the bare half of the tortilla over the cheese and continue cooking until cheese is melted.
