Quesadillas are a great way to use up leftovers you find in the fridge. Meat, vegetables, and cheese! They’re so easy to throw to together too, that they make a perfect quick meal. And you could even take them on the go!
Here’s how to make a simple quesadilla.
Put a little oil in a hot pan and place one tortilla in.
Now, add your fillings – cheese first, then any other items such as meat and veggies, then another bit of cheese. The cheese on the top and bottom helps everything to hold together when you flip the quesadilla. Cook until browned on the bottom. On this quesadilla I used cheese and some leftover steak that I just cut into bite size pieces.
Add a tortilla on top. Before you flip, drizzle a little oil on the top tortilla. Now flip and cook until browned on the bottom again.
Remove from pan and cut into wedges. Keep warm in 200 degree oven while you cook the rest of your quesadillas.
I also did potato quesadillas this day. Just mix leftover baked potato (just the flesh, not the skin) and cheese and layer between two tortillas.
If you have leftover veggies such as peppers, onions, etc, throw those in the mix too!
So next time you are cleaning out your fridge…make quesadillas for dinner! They are a family favorite around here.
