Ingredients

cost per recipe: $3.71

  • 6 flour tortilla (8-inch), warmed
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 2 medium green onion, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa or Medium Picante Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Instructions

  • Tips

    • For heartier quesadillas, you can add chopped cooked chicken, cooked black beans or refried beans.

  • Step 1

    Top half of each tortilla with 1/4 cup cheese, 2 teaspoons green onions and 1 tablespoon salsa.  Brush the edges of the tortillas with water.  Fold the tortillas over the filling and press to seal.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the quesadillas and cook in batches until lightly browned on both sides and the cheese is melted.  Serve with the remaining salsa.

    I made these without the green onions, added refried beans and used a cheddar and asadero cheese blend. Was pretty delicious for a quick weeknight meal and all of the kiddos ate it with no complaints. Win-Win
