Lazy but Delicious
by Katya Simkhovich
Of course I have no self control, so inevitably, I burnt my tongue attacking that gooey delicious cheese. Hey, I was pretty hungry too.
I’m sure most people out there are familiar with how to make quesadillas, but you never know. I once had to talk my father through the procedure for fifteen minutes over the phone. Fortunately, he now has quesadillas in his amazing repertoire: including making nachos and omelets, oh, and toasting bagels. Can you see why I’m the cook in the family?
A few suggestions: beans(mashed with a pinch of cumin), bell peppers, olives, zucchini, broccoli, any squash, any cheese (goat, feta, shredded mexican blend, Monterey jack, cheddar), any thing your heart, or your stomach desires.
First take two tortillas (I used whole wheat) put them on a small baking sheet with a spritz of olive oil. Then put the both on the sheet, sprinkle the filling onto one half of each, then fold them so the filling is covered. Then I sprits the top with a little more olive oil and finally throw them into the oven (or toaster oven) preheated to 300 F. Then I bake for about five minutes until crispy, take them out, flip them over and put them in for another five minutes until crisp. Cut into wedges, let them cool a tad (which I failed to do) and enjoy with some salsa, guacamole, or sour cream.
Isn’t being lazy delicious?
