Cheese Quesadillas Recipe by Paula Deen

Level: Easy

Time: 20 MINUTES

  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated (or Mexican blend)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • sour cream, for garnish
  • salsa, for garnish
  • guacamole, for garnish


Lay the tortillas flat on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle some of the cheese on 1 half of each tortilla. Try not to get it too close to the edge. Fold the tortillas in half over the cheese to make a half-moon. Warm a skillet over low heat and add 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the tortilla to the skillet and cook until it is lightly brown, about 2 minutes. Using a spatula, gently lift the edge so you can check. When 1 side is brown, turn the tortilla over and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is all gooey. Use a spatula to transfer to individual plates or a large platter. Repeat with remaining butter and tortillas. Top them with the sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
