These are a great snack or a quick meal, and you can add pretty much anything to them! To make ’em cheaper, use fresh, homemade tortillas.

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.
