Cheese quesadilla

Number served:

Ingredients:

  • flour tortilla - 2 serving
  • Cheddar cheese - 2 tablespoon
  • black olives - 4 jumbo
  • tomato (diced) - 1/4 cup
  • Olive oil - 1 tablespoon

Directions:

If you are making two small quesadillas, you can cook them together in a large frying pan, or separately in a small pan. One large tortilla can be substituted for 2 8-inch tortillas.

Add oil to a pan and set heat for medium. Cook one side of the tortillas until the cooked side starts to slightly blacken.

The tomato and large olives should be coarsely chopped.

Turn tortillas and add all ingredients, mixed, and being careful to keep ingredients away from the edges of the tortillas. Lower heat slightly, and cook until the cheese melts and the outer side of the tortillas slightly blacken.
