Quick Idea: Quesadillas

I love to make quesadillas with leftovers.  If we have any kind of meat leftover I will put it in a baggy and freeze it usually.  Then when we want to have quesadillas I just have to pull it out and defrost it. 

All I have to do is soften a tortilla in the microwave, spread a little refried beans on half the tortilla (sometimes I mix in a little enchilada sauce with the beans), sprinkle with meat, and cheese.  Sometimes I saute up some veggies but if your wanting quick these are still good without all the work.  Then fold the tortilla over and fry up on the stovetop with a little butter or cooking spray. 

Butter taste better of course and gives it that crunchy texture, but cooking spray will work if your watching your calories.  Also if your counting calories, or carbs for that matter, you can skip the tortilla and use a sheet of lavash.  We did this earlier this week and they were very yummy. 

Serve with some shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream, and/or guacomole. 


  1. I was just sitting here wondering if it would work with lavash bread. Yumm! And butter isn't a bad thing while low carbing, so that sounds like something I'm excited to try. Thanks, Reva!

  2. Yeah, Matthew and I had ours on the lavash bread and tortillas for the kids. I put butter on theirs but not mine. It was very tasty and fast. I can't do low carb with the kids easily and I love casseroles too much, so I've been counting calories.

  3. I just found your blog and am a new follower.

    I'd love for you to stop by my table and even link up to my Thursday carnival.
