Homemade Quesadilla Recipe

I had made chili for dinner last night and I usually serve it with Tostito’s scoops, but I had forgotten to buy them. Not wanting to make a salad, and I didn’t have bread to make garlic toast and then it hit me …  thinking out loud to myself …  I have some leftover tortilla shells why not make my own quesadillas.

Hoprepare 1

I must tell you that they came out pretty good and were gobbled up before I could reach for a third piece.

Without further ado, I’ll show you how I made them.

Ingredients  I apologize as I didn’t measure anything.

  • Chopped red onion (2 thick slices)
  • Chopped tomato (1 small tomato)
  • Chopped jalapeno (They were the jarred type)
  • Chopped peppers (I used yellow, red, and orange)
  • Cilantro
  • Cummin
  • 8 small tortilla shells
  • Cheddar cheese with jalapenos (I used 3 slices of processed)
  • Mozzarella cheese grated
  • Cheddar cheese grated


  1. Preheat your oven to 400° Fahrenheit or 200° Celcius
  2. Put all the ingredients except the shells and cheese into a small bowl and toss
  3. Lay out the shells and spoon the mixture onto of the shells
  4. Please note I put the processed cheese on the shells first
  5. Next, add the cheese on top of the mixture
  6. Place another shell on top
  7. Place on a cookie sheet or oven-safe dish and heat for about 5-6 minutes
  8. Remove from oven and cool for about ten minutes
  9. Slice and serve
  10. ENJOY
