Kids’ Quesadillas

  Optional add-ins: cooked diced chicken, cooked diced steak
6 ounces pre-shredded cheese of your choice, or dairy-free shreds
1 7-ounce package Siete tortillas, or sub your favorite whole grain or gluten-free tortillas
  1. Have all of your add-ins and toppings ready to go.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and place one tortilla in the skillet (two if your skillet is large enough). Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese over half of the tortilla and then top with your chosen add-ins; add another thin layer of cheese. Using a spatula, fold the side without fillings over the filled side and gently press.
  3. Allow the quesadilla to cook for several minutes until lightly browned before carefully flipping. Continue to cook for another few minutes until the second side is lightly browned.
  4. Continue making quesadillas until you have a total of eight.
  5. Enjoy the quesadillas hot out of the pan or keep them warm in an oven set to 200°F while you finish making the quesadillas.
  6. To serve, cut each quesadilla in half and top with chosen toppings.

Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, diced tomato, sliced black olives, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and/or diced avocado Note: If using a tortilla other than Siete, lightly butter one side of each tortilla. Place the tortillas in the heated skillet buttered-side down and continue filling and cooking as directed.
