Easy Cheesy Quesadillas

Easy Cheesy Quesadillas

We all have those evenings where we are rushing from work, to pick-up the kids, to help with homework, to being pulled in additional multiple directions, which only limits more of our time. On these evenings when I don’t have the time to prepare a fancy, or well-thought-out meal for my family, quesadillas are one of my many lifesavers. Quesadillas are one of THE easiest sides to make and with a little creativity and ingenuity, they can become simple meals. My children love them plain, filled with only cheese. However, if you want to make these more filling you can add some shredded chicken, sautéed green peppers and onions, or veggie meat, which I like. Top it off with guacamole, diced tomatoes and include a side of seasoned rice and refried beans for a more well-rounded meal.

Cheesy Quesadillas

Servings 2


  • 4 flour or corn tortillas 8 inches
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Pour a little olive oil in a pan and heat up one side of the tortilla shell.
  2. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the tortilla. Top with remaining tortilla and press down to be the the melted cheese spreads to the top shell. Pan fry over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side, or your tortilla shell has a nice golden color. Cut into wedges. Serve with your favorite sides.
  3. Eat warm and enjoy!

Cheers to quick and easy homemade meals,
