Tonight's recipe idea is kind of lame, but then, some dinners are. Everyone has those nights when you don't want to spend more than 10 minutes standing in the kitchen, right? Or maybe that's just me. Anyway, tonight was one of those nights, so we decided rather than a regular bean and cheese quesadilla, we'd do something a bit different... ham and cheese quesadilla! (Oh so different.) We didn't have bread or I probably would have done ham and cheese melts, but such is life. (We still don't have any bread, so lunch tomorrow will be L-A-M-E. Why didn't I realize this sooner?)
Anyway, here's the recipe, complete with lots of room for variation.
- lunchmeat, chopped chicken, bacon, beans, or something of that sort, or any combination thereof.
- cheese of any variety (we used havarti and colby jack tonight)
Heat a skillet to medium heat. If desired, melt a bit of butter in it (I don't). Put some meat and cheese on the tortilla, fold in half, and plop it in the pan. After a while, flip it over. Repeat until cheese is melted, tortilla is browned satisfactorily, and nothing is burned. Remove from pan. I only cook one at a time because I find it annoying to have to work around the other one when I flip one of them, but you could conceivably cook two at once if you really wanted to.
Cut into manageable pieces (thirds or halves work well) and enjoy!
