Cheese Quesadillas

Linda Larsen
Cheesy Quesadillas are so fast and so good. The kids will love them! You can use shredded cheese or try different types of sliced cheeses from the deli.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 4-6


  • 6-8 flour or corn tortillas
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheese, any flavor, OR 8 ounces thinly sliced deli cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened


Make quesadillas by placing cheese between two tortillas, or placing cheese on half of each tortilla and folding over to cover.

Spread outsides of tortillas with softened butter. Heat a pan over medium heat, then add quesadillas. Cook, pressing down with spatula, 2-3 minutes on first side until golden. Carefully flip and cook on second side. Cut into wedges to serve.

Easy and good, Guest Lori

My kids like to make this recipe when they're hungry. I keep the ingredients around so they can because it's healthier than nacho chips or snack foods!
