Fold-Over Quesadillas

Fold-Over Quesadillas

There's no reason to think of quesadillas as mere appetizers when they make such a quick and easy meal. When preparing the quesadillas, keep the tortillas covered to prevent them from drying out and cracking when you fold them.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 wedges, 2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 tablespoon salsa, and 1 tablespoon cilantro)


  • 1 none (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 4 none (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • none Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated fresh salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


Spoon 2 tablespoons green chiles over half of each tortilla, spreading evenly. Sprinkle cheese, onion, and cumin over chiles. Fold each tortilla in half.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 2 quesadillas, and cook 2 minutes. Turn and cook 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from pan, and keep warm. Repeat with remaining quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges. Serve with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro.
