Salsa Quesadillas

This is a very simple, quick recipe to make when you just don't feel like cooking. We have a quesadilla maker, so just put the ingredients together in there, however, I did put the recipe from the book that discusses how to make this in a skillet.

I do have to admit the absolute fail I did while making Scott's quesadilla. I definitely forgot to put the additional tortilla on top and closed the quesadilla maker. Let's just say, it was a mess to clean up. You could add additional ingredients or meats to this as you choose-really make it your own!

Salsa Quesadillas-adapted from Meals Made Easy by Real Simple
Total Time: 15 Minutes
Serves 2

  • 4 8-inch tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded taco cheese
  • 8 ounce jar chunky store-bought salsa
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, per quesadilla
Lay one tortilla on a flat surface and place half the salsa, cheese and onion in the middle, leaving a 1-inch border. Place in quesadilla maker with second tortilla on top and cook for recommended cooking time.

If using a skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Place tortilla with ingredients on the skillet, with second tortilla covering. Cook about 2 minutes per side, or until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden and crisp.

Cut tortillas into slices and serve with sour cream, guacamole, or additional salsa.
