Ingredients
  • 4 tortillas
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup green chiles chopped (canned or fresh)
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro
Instructions
  1. Spread 1/4 cup of green chilies evenly over one tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese over the chilies, then top with half the cilantro. Place another tortilla on top of each prepared tortilla to form a quesadilla. Repeat!
  2. Place a large, non-stick pan on medium heat. Once it’s hot, add a quesadilla and toast for about 1 minute. Flip it over and brown the second side, then do the same for the other quesadilla. Slice into triangles and enjoy with some fresh salsa and sour cream.

    So simple, quick, and delicious. I added some re fried beans, and dipped in sour cream. This would be a great appetizer for a gathering or party.
