Cheese Quesadilla

24th Nov, 2012 

On a busy night or weekend, this is one of the menus that
I go to. The recipe that I have today is for the basic cheese quesadilla, but
one can get their imagination wild and go with any filling along with cheese to
make this a meal. I made a basic salsa to go with the quesadilla. This is my
son’s favorite lunch box menu and it is so easy to make in the mornings. This
is also a quick and easy recipe that requires very minimal ingredients and can
be made under 30 mins. There are fancy quesadilla makers in the market, but I
find the cast iron pan to do the job just fine.
I have the salsa recipe here!
Preparation time – 10 mins plus time taken to make the
salsa
Cooking time – 15 mins
Difficulty level – easy
Ingredients – (to make 4 quesadillas)
  • Tortilla (flour or corn) – 4 (I used the burrito size)
  • Cheese (Mexican blend) – 1 cup (1/4 cup for each
    quesadilla)
  • Non stick oil spray
Procedure –
  • Prepare the salsa as per the recipe and refrigerate until
    ready to serve.
  • Heat the pan and spray some oil. Now place a tortilla on
    the pan and heat it until light brown spots appear. 
  • Now flip the tortilla and fill one half of it with 1/4th
    cup of cheese.
  • Fold the tortilla over (makes a semi circle) and then
    press it down with a spatula. You will notice that the cheese starts to melt.
    Flip the tortilla over and cook on the other side too.
  • Now using a pizza cutter cut the quesadilla into 4
    strips. Repeat the same with the rest of the tortillas.
