Cheesy Quesadillas

Prep Time 3 mins
Cook Time 7 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 2 to 3 cups filling: leftover cooked vegetables cooked meat, crumbled tofu, cooked beans, fresh or frozen corn, cooked rice or grains, or any other leftovers
  • 2 teaspoons butter or vegetable oil divided
  • 4 large flour tortillas 9-inch to 10-inch
  • 2 cups shredded cheese such as cheddar, Monterey jack, colby, fontina, or any favorite melting cheese

Instructions
 

  • Prep filling - if cold, warm it in microwave. If raw, cook/steam beforehand. (You can be creative with the filling- beans, sliced protein, and reheated frozen or pre-cooked veggies are all great options)
  • Place 1 tortilla in the skillet and sprinkle all over with ~1/2 cup of cheese (about 1/4 of your shredded cheese pile)
  • Add a layer of filling over half of the tortilla.
  • When the cheese melts, begin lifting a corner of the tortilla and checking the underside. When you see golden-brown spots on the underside of the tortilla, the quesadilla is ready.
  • Transfer to the cutting board and cut into triangles (or not!).
  • Repeat process with the remaining tortillas
