Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know what my absolute favorite food is! Here is a little blog post on how I make my “instagram famous” quesadillas! I did make a Youtube video on this a year ago but I thought I’d create a blog post for those who want to have a readable version! Luke LOVES quesadillas too and we always eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They are the perfect portable food and are so filling ๐Ÿ™‚ These ingredients are simple and of course, you can put anything you want in them. These are the fillings I like to use!

Ingredients:

  • Tortillas! I always use uncooked, raw tortillas from Costco (brand: Tortilla Land) because they taste so much better than precooked. It makes such a difference!
  • Butter/Oil
  • Mexican style cheese! Or any nice melting cheese, I like to use shredded
  • Egg! I like making my eggs un-scrambled but no runny yolk
  • Beans! I like using canned cooked beans
  • (optional) Avocado!
  • (optional) Protein of choice (I love using leftovers)

Directions (10 minutes) :

  1. Put butter/oil in a large pan. The tortillas I use are relatively big so I always use a large pan and with the extra space, I use it to fry my egg.
  2. Place tortilla on pan and sprinkle cheese on one half and it’s edges. This is what gives it an extra crunch of flavor!
  3. In a separate pan or same pan, fry your egg
  4. I microwave my beans and spread about 1-2 tablespoons on half of the tortilla
  5. Add egg on top of beans
  6. Add protein of choice or avocado if you have it
  7. Fold tortilla and smash
  8. Flip over and done!

I think adding 3-4 fillings in the quesadilla is the perfect amount. My quesadillas are about 1/2 inch thick and the more fillings you put in, the harder it is to fold. For on the go, I like wrapping my quesadilla in foil and it stays nice and warm. I think they taste super good at every temperature ๐Ÿ™‚ yum.

Thank you guys so much and have an amazing day!
