Tips & Tricks

  • You can use any kind of tortilla to make quesadillas including wheat or low carb versions.
  • Try different kinds of shredded cheese or a mixture of cheeses like cheddar, Mexican blend, mozzarella, or Italian blend.
  • For a heartier meal add protein such as chicken, beef, fish, or shrimp. This is a great way to use leftover meat from another meal.
  • Add veggies like sautéed onions and mushrooms for another layer of flavor.
