What to Cook When You Hate to Cook. Recipe 4: Kitchen Sink Quesadillas

What I love most about this recipe is that it never comes out the same way twice, because I’m usually relying on whatever leftovers I happen to have in the fridge. (And as a single person, I tend to have a lot of leftovers.)

There are some ingredients that are required, of course, and as per usual with most of my lazy recipes, amounts are up to you:

  • Tortillas
  • Shredded Cheese (I like Monterrey Jack, but I’ve also used Cheddar or Mozzarella.)

Optional ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese (Not required, but highly recommended. It makes it smoother.)
  • Seasonings such as Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Cilantro, or whatever else suits your fancy.
  • Cooked leftovers such as: Pork, Beef, Hamburger, Fish, Chicken, Scrambled Eggs, Rice, Sautéed Onions, or Black Beans.
  • Other odds and ends such as Spinach, Olives, or Tofu,  I’ve even been known to add Nuts or Apple slices. Basically, if it sounds like it would be good, give it a try.

Then it’s just a matter of putting your tortilla in a lightly sprayed nonstick pan over medium heat, mixing all the other ingredients together, putting a reasonable amount on the tortilla, and covering it with another tortilla. Heat about 2 minutes on each side.

Done. Simple! You’ll be home and eating before the engine even cools down on your car.

If you feel like getting fancy, serve with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, salad, or soup on the side.
