Fajita-Style Quesadillas

Directions

  1. In a large skillet cook sweet pepper, onion, and serrano pepper in hot oil over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are just tender. Remove from heat.
  2. Lightly coat one side of each tortilla with cooking spray. On the uncoated side of two of the tortillas, divide half of the cheese. Top with onion mixture, tomato slices, the 1 tablespoon cilantro, and the remaining cheese. Top with remaining tortillas, coated sides up.
  3. Heat a very large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Cook quesadillas for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until cheese melts and tortillas are lightly browned. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve warm and, if desired, with sour cream, additional cilantro and lime wedges.

From the Test Kitchen

*Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

The Fajita Style Quesadillas are absolutely delicious! To stretch the recipe for left overs, I added some chicken.

I personally love Quesadillas and I always have but I can't eat hot spicy peppers so I would have to leave out the hot peppers but all else can stay !!

Thank You For Sharing your Recipe !! :)

When I make this, I add about a pound of thinly sliced cooked chicken breasts. Takes this recipe from an appetizer to a quick dinner fix. Everyone seems to like it!

Made these for dinner tonight and they are really delicious. Definitely not 8 servings unless you're serving these as an appetizer and even than the serving size of 1 quesadilla wedge is a little chintzy. I was able to get three quesadillas out of this recipe and ate a whole one for dinner tonight. Pair this with a corn and some rice and/or beans and this can definitely make for a quick, easy and yummy week-night meal.

Wait, is this saying that one slice is 61 calories?

Kathy- I don't think that serves 8 in most peoples family. Still- reasonable cost and q&e (quick & easy)

Serves 8??? So 1 PIECE of a quesadilla constitutes a meal?? Not in my family
