You can put almost anything inside two tortillas and pan-fry them. The insides get gooey and the outsides get crisp and you can cut them into tiny wedges and they will be delicious.


I prepared six of these in advance, fried them up a few hours before I was ready to serve them, and then heated them on a cookie sheet immediately before serving. Ingredients:

  • 12 tortillas, 2 for each quesadilla
  • Grated cheese. I had mozzarella, so I used mozzarella
  • A jar of salsa
  • Chopped onions
  • Chopped peppers: bell, jalapeno, chili, whatever
  • A can of corn
  • A can of vegetarian refried beans



  1. Place one tortilla on a flat surface.
  2. Top with any or all of the above ingredients I find the cheese helps them stick together, so I include that in all of them. I also find that too many ingredients make them fall apart, so I try not to pile things too high.
  3. Cover with another tortilla.
  4. Heat and grease a pan.
  5. Place the quesadilla on the pan and press it down. Let it cook for about 5 minutes.
  6. Here, it may help to grease the top of the quesadilla so it doesn’t stick when you flip it.
  7. Now flip the quesadilla and cook the other side for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from pan and repeat until all of the quesadillas are cooked.
  9. Cut into wedges and enjoy!
