Meatless Mondays anyone? I had bought 3 bell peppers last week and I was thinking of what to do with them tonight. I could only use 2 of them though, the orange one didn't look so great after a few days apparently. Quesadillas are easy to make and you could basically put anything you want in it and add some cheese. I actually used my toaster to oven to make them tonight since I was only making 2 of them. If you are making more, you can use your regular oven. I decided to make bell pepper quesadillas, and they came out surprisingly tasty! Next time I might try to add some caramelized onions too...so feel free to do that if you have it at home.
4 flour tortillas
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup shredded cheese (I used a Mexican blend of cheddar, montery jack, colby and mozzarella cheeses.)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Slice the bell peppers into thin strips.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat.
Add in sliced peppers with cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook peppers until soft, about 5 to 7 minutes.
Place tortilla flat on a baking sheet. Spoon a layer of peppers on the tortilla. Top with ¼ cup cheese. Cover with another tortilla.
Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Slice into quarters, it is easy if you have a pizza cutter to do this. Top with your preferred topping(s) or serve on its own, it’s just as delicious!
Also, I wanted to have some leftovers for lunch this week, and was able to fit 3 slices into each Tupperware container.
