Do you know how to make quesadillas? We think you should! They’re gooey, crunchy, and just all around tasty. They’re the perfect college food. AND they’re crazy versatile too! You can make them as healthy or as fattening as your little heart desires.
How to Make Quesadillas
Our favorite thing about quesadillas (besides the melted cheese) is how easy they are to make – in about 15-20 minutes you can have a delicious meal. Here are some tips on making a ? quesadilla:
Use Soft Cheeses
Cheese meltedness is directly related to delicousness so use a softer, shredded cheese – they get gooier. Remember: too much cheese is not a thing.
Add Herbs & Spices
Want to feel like Queen Bey in the kitchen? You can completely change the quesadilla game by throwing different herbs and spices in the mix. Serve it up with an ice cold glass of #lemonade
If you don’t cook your meats before throwing them in, you will get salmonella and die. This should be a no-brainer, but it’s better to be safe than dead, y’all.
A dry pan leads to a burnt tortilla, which leads to hanger. Only you can prevent hanger by heating oil or butter in the pan before you do anything else. Don’t use too much, though, or your quesadilla will be soggier than your pillow after listening to Adele.
Before you add the innards of your masterpiece, toast the tortilla in the pan. Toast it on both sides for extra crunch! Side note: Have your mom send you this Cuisinart Griddler and your quesadilla (and burger game) will be on point!
After you’ve toasted your tortilla, add your cheese first. It’ll melt and wrap the rest of your ingredients in a delightful, gooey cradle.
Top It Off
Toppings are essential to a perfect quesadilla. Throw some guac, sour cream, and salsa on top and you’ve got yourself a party! And, unlike Chipotle, guac isn’t extra.
