With only tortilla and cheese, you can prepare a simple quesadilla for a meal or appetizer in just minutes. Both the flour flour and corn tortillas work wonderfully, and you can add all sorts of ingredients to make the dish rich and spicy. From chicken and steaks to vegetarian quesadillas, this fun recipe is easy to change and always a favorite family.
- Tortillas (corn or flour)
- Grated cheese
- Lobster butter or olive oil
Step 1 Prepare the pan
Add about 1 tablespoon of lime butter or olive oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Use a small saucepan when making quesadillas with corn tortillas and use a larger pan for standard meal tortillas. Turn the pan so that the melted butter or oil covers the entire surface.
Step 2 Add a tortilla and cheese
Place a pan on the bottom of the pan and top with your favorite type of sliced cheese. The grated cheese blends you bought at the store work great. If making quesadillas with corn tortillas, use 1/4 to 1/3 cup grated cheese. If using large flour tortillas, use about 1/2 cup of grated cheese.
Step 3 Add a second tortilla
After the cheese has melted gently, place a second tortilla on top first. Continue cooking until the cheese is almost melted and the bottom tortilla is crisp, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 4 Turn Quesadilla
Once the cheese is almost finished inside the Quesadilla, gently turn with a spatula. Cook the quesadilla for another 1 to 2 minutes until the cheese has melted completely and the second tortilla is crisp.
Step 5 Cut and serve
Place quesadilla on a cutting board and cut it in half or quarter.
Serve the quesadillas with homemade sauce, hot sauce or dip of your choice.

Step 6 Start with the cheese
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and add a large flour tortilla. Sprinkle half of the grated cheese over half of the tortilla.
Step 7 Add beans and avocado
Spread the black beans, avocado slices and remaining cheese evenly over the first layer of cheese. Fold the tortilla in half and allow it to cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute or until the bottom layer of cheese has melted.
Step 8 Turn quesadilla over
Carefully flip the Quesadilla with a spatula. Cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute or until all the cheese has melted and the tortilla is crisp.
Step 9 Cut the wedges
Transfer quesadilla to a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut it into pieces. Serve the quesadilla with your favorite sauce, guacamole or dip.
Corn and wheat tortillas make delicious flavours. If you add more than cheese, flour tortillas are recommended as they are more durable and contain more ingredients than corn tortillas.
Use Jack, Cheddar, Gruyère, Swiss, Pepperjack or a combination of your favorite cheeses.
- Roasted or cooked chicken, beef, shrimp or pork
- Beans of choice
- Guacamole or avocado slice
- Homemade or bought sauce or spicy sauce
- Fresh tomatoes, spinach, onion, mushrooms or corn
