Easy Cheesy Quesadilla ™

This is perfect for watching the big game, tailgating, company, or even for a quick snack.  I've used a Mexican blend of cheese. Feel free to experiment and use what cheeses and fillings you like. 


8-10  flour tortillas 
8-10 oz shredded cheese
6- oz each: chopped bell peppers, chopped onions
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp mild chopped chilies (optional)
1- 2 T oil (olive or canola)

Heat skillet to medium high heat.  Lower heat to medium, add oil. 

Lay 1 flour tortilla in pan. Sprinkle some of the cheese, onions, peppers, red pepper flakes, and chile on tortilla. Place another tortilla on top. 

Cook on one side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip over to cook on other side for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove quesadilla from pan and place on serving place. Repeat cooking process with remaining tortillas and fillings.

To serve, cut quesadilla into 4 slices. 

Serves 4-5 (one quesadilla).
