Cheese quesadilla anyone? One of my favorite lunchtime treats cooked to perfection. Sitting outside and eating this cheesy treat is just one of the few highlights of my day.
Here’s an easy Cheese Quesadilla recipe:
4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup grated cheese, sharp Cheddar or Mexican blend
4 tablespoons butter
Sour cream (Optional)
Lay the tortillas flat on a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle some of the cheese on 1 half of each tortilla.
Try not to get it too close to the edge.
Fold the tortillas in half over the cheese to make a half-moon.
Warm a skillet over low heat and add 1 tablespoon of the butter.
Add the tortilla to the skillet and cook until it is lightly brown, about 2 minutes.
Using a spatula, gently lift the edge so you can check.
When 1 side is brown, turn the tortilla over and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is all gooey.
Use a spatula to transfer to individual plates or a large platter.
Repeat with remaining butter and tortillas.
Top them with the sour cream, salsa, and guacamole (as preferred).
