quesadillas - three ways



I love, love, love Mexican food.  If my husband didn't hate it so much, I would probably eat it even more than I already do...and I would definitely frequent Mexican restaurants more often.  Isn't it sad what we sacrifice for our marriages?  For me it's Mexican food and my sanity...haha.

I love making quesadillas when I am on my own for lunch or dinner.  I always have flour or corn tortillas in the fridge and they can be stuffed with just about anything for a super easy meal or snack.

quesadillas - three ways

 one - kale and corn 

 

Steam a half cup of corn kernels and mix with a cup of chopped kale and some fresh cilantro.  In a frying pan, lay down one tortilla, top with the kale/corn mixture, a little queso blanco, and a second tortilla.  Brown on each side for about 3 minutes.  Slice and enjoy with fresh salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc.


two - bean and cheese


This option is a somewhat "traditional" quesadilla.  Just spread a large scoop refried beans {I like black, vegetarian refried beans} on a tortilla, sprinkle on some cheddar cheese, top with a second tortilla and brown on each side in a fry pan.  I like to eat mine with a little guacamole and salsa.


three - cinnamon and sugar


This is a lazy woman's crepe.  I love to make actual crepes, but sometimes two flour tortillas will satisfy that crazing in a just a few minutes.  To make these, simply spread a tablespoon of butter on one flour tortilla and sprinkle with lots and lots of cinnamon and sugar.  Top with a second flour tortilla and brown in a pan until the butter and sugar melt together into a sticky, buttery goodness.


Enjoy!

  1. oh, this is perfect! I need some inspiration for quesadillas. I love them, but get stuck in a rut of using the same ingredients all the time! I need to try the kale and corn...maybe it will be lunch on Saturday :)

  2. Delish. And seriously, how can your husband not want to eat these goodies when you make them?
