Easy Cheese Quesadillas

Ingredients

  • 8- 8 inch flour tortillas (see note)
  • 4 cups shredded cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • guacamole, salsa, sour cream (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a stainless steel or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Place shredded cheese on a tortilla and fold it in half.
  3. Place the tortilla in the hot oil for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Flip the tortilla and brown the other side.
  5. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
  6. Serve immediately with salsa, guacamole or your favorite veggies.
  7. You can also add pre-cooked shredded chicken or beef, black beans and veggies before cooking.

Notes

To make these gluten free, use corn tortillas (check ingredients) and place cheese between two whole tortillas before frying. Once both sides are browned and the cheese is melted, cut the tortilla into slices.

We also have red beans or a bean mix that has already been cooked and placed in freezer baggies. They are great to mash up and add to the quesadillas.

We make refried beans (recipe here: http://thepeacefulmom.com/2011/06/06/simple-gluten-free-refried-beans/), but I never thought of freezing them. Great idea Emily!
