Quesadilla night comes at least twice a week at our house. Quesadillas are fun and easy to make (take no more than 10 minutes to slap together) and can be a relatively healthy meal (depending upon what you add to your quesadilla, of course). The apple cheddar combo seems to be one that kids are agreeable to because the ingredients and flavors are familiar. Serve this along with some sliced raw veggies and a glass of low-fat milk and you’ve got a quick and balanced dinner in 15 minutes or less. Certainly a better option than a run through the drive through, wouldn’t you say?
- Place tortilla on a large dinner plate or clean cutting surface. Layer sliced apples and cheese on one half of the tortilla.
- In a large non-stick skillet pan, heat 1 teaspoon of butter or margarine on low/medium heat.
- Place tortilla in the heated skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes. Fold over the empty half of the tortilla onto the half with the cheese and apples. Cook for another 1-2 minutes and then flip onto the other side with a spatula. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown on both size and all cheese has melted.
