Quesadillas I

Recipe by  

"A delicious, cheesy pre-dinner treat. I like to make quesadillas without butter, but you could put butter in the frying pan before placing the tortilla in. Serve with sour cream and salsa."

  1. Heat a large frying pan or griddle over a medium heat. Place one tortilla flat on the frying pan. After 1 minute flip the tortilla over. Sprinkle a little more than 1/4 cup cheese on the tortilla, followed by some olives, avocado, and hot pepper sauce. Place another tortilla on top to make a sandwich. Cover the quesadilla with a lid. After one minute, flip the quesadilla. When the cheese has melted on the inside, remove the quesadilla. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  2. Cut the quesadillas into triangles and serve.

This was really good. I used Mexican cheese mix instead of the mozzarella, green chiles instead of the jalapenos and advocado, and taco seasoning instead of the red pepper. It was very kid friendly this way and delicious.

This is simple and easy to make for kids. I used cheddar instead of Mozzerella.

The taste is almost there I added shredded chicken that I spiced up. what a big difference

These are great with a little tweaking. Mozzerella isn't exactly traditional mexican cheese. I used colby jack and added lots more fresh veggies and I baked it instead of frying. Great comfort snack food.

These were very good and very easy to make. I used Mexican cheese instead of mozzarella and jalapeño peppers instead of hot pepper sauce. I found that 1 avocado was enough. I served this with salsa and sour cream. I served this as a main dish and probably should have doubled the recipe. It didn't go quite far enough for 4 people. Would make a great appetizer! Thanks, Cody!

I added ground beef flavored with taco seasoning for an added bonus to this recipe. This was so easy to make, and it was a nice change from the same ole tacos! Yumm!

Great, easy recipe. You can add some sort of bean to it, too.

Good recipe. I substituted jalapenos for the hot sauce. They are great dipped in salsa.
