Pear Quesadillas

Share this:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup grated cheese (try cheddar, jack, or pepper jack)
  • 1 cup pear slices (fresh or canned/drained)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green or red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion (green, red, or yellow)
  • 4 medium whole wheat tortillas

Directions:

1. Divide cheese, pears, peppers and onions between the tortillas, covering about half of each tortilla. Fold each tortilla in half over the filling.

2. Heat a skillet or griddle to medium (300 degrees in an electric skillet). Place one or two folded tortillas on a dry skillet and heat until cheese melts and the tortilla browns slightly, about 2-4 minutes.

3. With large spatula, gently turn quesadillas over and cook the other side until a little brown, 2-4 minutes.

4. Remove to a plate and repeat until all tortillas are heated. Cut each cooked quesadilla in half and serve.

Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
