Super Easy Cheese Quesadillas

Kids seem to adopt quesadillas at an early age because they’re easy to eat.  Kids also love to make them. You can jazz this up with avocado, chopped cilantro, and chopped tomatoes, but it’s not necessary.

This is the simple recipe that kids can make for themselves.  If you don’t have both kinds of cheese, one kind is fine, doubling the amount.  Probably then, opt for the cheddar cheese.
Serves 4.


1 cup shredded Jack Cheese or Pepper Jack Cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
2-3 scallions (green onions), chopped
4 Flour Tortillas

Spray the tortillas lightly on both sides with water and lay each on its own plate.  Microwave for 30 seconds.

Shred the cheeses.  Wash and chop the scallions—both the white and green parts.

Sprinkle cheese (generously) and scallions on the tortillas and fold the tortillas over.  Microwave individually for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and place the quesadillas on a breadboard for just a minute to cool.

When cooled a little, cut it into wedges and serve with salsa. If serving to kids, stick with mild salsa.  Most children don’t like really hot, spicy foods.
