For less-adventurous eaters, skip the peppers and onions. For veggie lovers, add sides of sliced avocado and chopped lettuce. Serve with salsa and light sour cream on the side.

How to Make It

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

If using, cook peppers and onion in the oil in a large skillet for 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat when soft; add salt to taste.

Sprinkle 1/3 cup of cheese over one half of each tortilla. Then top cheese with 1/4 cup of pepper-and-onion mixture, if using. Fold the uncovered half of each tortilla over cheese and press down gently.

In a nonstick skillet, cook tortillas in a single layer over medium heat, about 2 minutes. Flip over and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese is melted. Remove tortillas from the pan and cut each into 4 wedges. Repeat until all quesadillas are cooked.

How kids can help: Sprinkle cheese on tortillas; fold tortillas over to form quesadillas.

For grown-ups: Season the peppers and onions with cumin and chili powder.
