Recipe Information
Ed's Cafe


  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cooked shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) shredded cheese (cheddar and/or jack)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) sliced green onions, optional
  • Toppings:
  • salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc.
  • Place one tortilla on plate or cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle chicken, cheese, and green onions over tortilla.
  • Place second tortilla on top.
  • Cooking:
  • You can microwave it for 1-2 minutes,
  • or place in a non-stick frying pan on medium-low heat, covered, until the cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes,
  • or wrap in foil and bake at 375 degrees (200 C.) until cheese is melted, about 5-10 minutes,
  • or you can spend the money on a quesadilla maker.
  • To serve, cut into wedges with a sharp knife or pizza cutter!
My kids usually just microwave them. Quesadillas are very versatile. You can use a mixture of cheeses; use taco meat in place of the chicken; whatever you like! I refuse to spend money on the quesadilla maker because I don't care for items like this that only have one function, can be difficult to clean, and take up precious storage space in my kitchen.
