The Best Homemade Quesadillas

I make Quesadillas at least once a week at home. They’re great for busy weeknights when I come home from work after a long day and don’t feel like spending a long time in the kitchen. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s always good! It’s also great for when you’re running low on groceries and don’t feel like spending money on takeout. As long as you have tortilla bread and cheese, you’re good. What I love about Quesadillas is that there are so many different ways of making them and you can really play with the ingredients depending on what you like.

Here are my top two recipes:

Spicy Spinach and Cheese Quesadillas

Ingredients

  • Tortilla Bread
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded (or Cheddar depending on preference)
  • Spinach
  • Mushrooms (optional)
  • Sriracha
  • Sour Cream (or Mayonnaise if you don’t have Sour Cream)
  • Oil

Directions

  1. Spread sour cream (or mayo) on tortilla bread. Add sriracha (quantity depends on how spicy you want it). Top with spinach and mushroom (I’ve done with and without mushrooms and it’s good either way). Finish by adding mozzarella cheese and top with another tortilla bread.
  2. Add a bit of oil on a medium frying pan. Add the tortilla sandwich on the pan.
  3. Cook about 2 minutes on each side until lightly brown and crisp.
  4. Enjoy!
