Easy Mexican Dinner

 
Ingredients for Quesadillas
 
4 – 8″ or 10″ flour tortillas
1 1/3 cups cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese or half sharp cheddar or if you like a little heat, the Monterey Jack with peppers
 
Heat a non-stick pan on medium with about 2 Tbsp. canola oil
Place the tortilla in the pan and top with 1/3 c. of cheese 
When it starts to get golden, flip over half the tortilla. Heat for about a minute or more, don’t let it get too brown.
 
Remove from pan and place on paper towel and repeat with the next one.
Keep warm in the oven.
