Ingredient List

  • 4 Old El Paso™ Flour Tortillas For Burritos (8 inch; from 11-oz package)
  • 2 cups Old El Paso™ Shredded Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend (8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup Old El Paso™ Creamy Salsa Verde Sauce

Preparation

  1. On one half of each tortilla, spread 1/2 cup cheese; fold tortilla over filling.
  2. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Place 2 quesadillas in skillet at a time. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, turning once, until tortilla is golden brown and crisp and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.
  3. To serve, cut into wedges. Drizzle quesadillas with sauce.

Expert Tips

  • Serve Old El Paso™ Creamy Salsa Verde Sauce alongside these quick quesadillas for dipping rather than drizzling on top, or try it with Old El Paso™ Zesty Ranch Sauce.
  • Try topping these quick cheese quesadillas with guacamole or pico de gallo salsa. Chopped cilantro is a great fresh garnish.
  • After cooking each quick quesadilla, cover it to keep it warm while you cook the remaining quesadillas. When cooking the second batch of quesadillas, watch the tortillas carefully, since the skillet will already be hot and may cook in less time.
  • For the ultimate in melting cheeses, try Old El Paso™ Shredded Quesadilla Cheese to replace Old El Paso™ Shredded Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend for even more gooey cheesiness for the quesadillas. Divide Old El Paso™ Shredded Quesadilla Cheese among the 4 tortillas; continue with the recipe.
