It’s no secret that I love tacos. But one of the great things about making tacos is that there are often leftovers, and sometimes it’s fun to do something a little different with the leftovers than simply make more tacos. Which is what I did for lunch today.
Quesadilla day! It was a regular lunchtime fiesta (a day early for cinco de mayo!).
Easy to make and tasty – a winning combination. Just start off with a tortilla, line the (entire) bottom with some cheese and then add whatever goodies you want on one half: I added some leftover taco meat and onions. You could also add peppers, tomatoes, black beans… whatever you have available that you think would be good on a quesadilla!
Now let that cheese start to melt and get all nice and gooey! Once it does begin to melt a bit, go ahead and fold your quesadilla in half.
Almost there… Give it a few minutes on each side (to make your tortilla as toasted/crispy as you like), and then you’re ready. Cut into some nice little triangles, add a dab of salsa, and you’ve got a nice little lunchtime quesadilla made with some recycled ingredients in just a few short minutes.
