Instructions Checklist
  • Place a tortilla on a microwave-safe paper towel. Microwave on high about 30 seconds or until soft. Cool slightly.

  • Fold the warm tortilla in half, then in half again. Use kitchen scissors to cut out small pieces of the tortilla, just as you would to make a snowflake out of paper. Unfold the tortilla. Save until Step 4.

  • Place the remaining tortilla on a microwave-safe plate. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.

  • Place the snowflake tortilla on the cheese-topped tortilla. Microwave on high for 45 to 60 seconds or until the cheese is melted. Use kitchen scissors to cut the quesadilla into 4 or 6 triangles. Serve with salsa, if you like. Makes 2 servings.
