Ten Minute Meals - Quesadillas

When I want a no-fuss, nutritious meal with a little kick, I make quesadillas. You can put anything on a quesadilla (and I have). Chicken cubes, pork shreds, onions, peppers, mushrooms, squash, avocado, any kind of vegetable or meat at all. I usually keep tomatilla sauce and salsa around all the time and serve it with some on the side, along with sour cream or guacamole.

Flour tortillas
shredded cheese, either Monterey Jack or cheddar
chopped vegetables
chopped meat
olive oil for skillet

Preheat skillet to med - med high. Put about a teaspoon of oil in it and swirl around until the skillet is coated. Place a tortilla in, flip a couple of times, add a handful of grated cheese and the toppings of your choice. Top with a second tortilla, mash slightly together, and flip. Keep flipping until tortilla is browned to your satisfaction, and the cheese is melted.

Alternatively, you can assemble them and put them in the oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.

Serve with salsa or tomatilla sauce, sour cream or guacamole. Add a salad, and you have an entire meal.
