Quesadillas

A repost from the Witch’s Kitchen blog, which will soon go away.

Quesadillas are a quick, easy, filling, and yummy meal. And a great way to use up leftover meat.

In its simplest form, a quesadilla is just 2 tortillas stuck together with melted cheese. To make, just top a tortilla – I prefer corn, but you can use flour tortillas – with shredded cheese and another tortilla. Put into a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. When the cheese is a bit melty, flip the whole thing over. The quesadilla is done when the cheese is totally melted and both sides are golden.

Some variations:

spread refried black beans on the bottom tortilla before adding the cheese

add cooked ground beef, shredded cooked chicken, or thinly sliced pieces of cooked steak on top of the cheese, then add another layer of cheese before topping with the second tortilla

add chopped frozen spinach (thawed and with the water squeezed out) or other diced, cooked veggies

To serve, cut into 4 or 6 wedges. Serve with salsa and sour cream on the side.
