Quesadillas are a delicious Mexican dish that combines the richness of melted cheese with the satisfying crunch of a tortilla. This quick and easy recipe is perfect for a tasty snack or a simple meal. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making classic cheese quesadillas:


1. Flour tortillas

2. Shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend)

3. Butter or cooking spray

4. Optional: Salsa, guacamole, sour cream for serving


1. Prepare the Cheese:

   – Shred your preferred cheese or use pre-shredded cheese for convenience.

2. Assemble the Quesadillas:

   – Lay a tortilla flat and evenly distribute a layer of shredded cheese on one half.

3. Fold the Tortilla:

   – Fold the tortilla in half, creating a semi-circle with the cheese inside.

4. Cooking on the Stovetop:

   – Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.

   – Add a small amount of butter to the pan or use cooking spray.

5. Cook the Quesadilla:

   – Place the folded tortilla in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until the tortilla becomes golden brown and the cheese melts.

6. Repeat:

   – If making multiple quesadillas, repeat the process for each one.

7. Serve:

   – Once cooked, remove the quesadilla from the pan and let it cool for a minute before slicing.

   – Serve with salsa, guacamole, or sour cream if desired.

8. Enjoy:
