Q Is for Quick & Quirky Quesadillas

Snacks that start with Q - Quick & Quirky Quesadillas

One of my favorite recipes in the ABC Snacks Series is Quick & Quirky Quesadillas.

This delicious recipe is perfect to make for a mid-afternoon snack or as a filling lunch.

But these are no ordinary quesadillas.

I’ve added a quirky twist to this traditionally Mexican snack classic: they’re really personal-sized pizzas dressed up in quesadilla’s clothing!

And the best part?

These somewhat quirky quesadillas are quick and easy to create and delicious to eat. And they make a great snack for preschoolers and even for the whole family!

Print Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need to make one quirky quesadilla:

  • 2 10” tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 1 ounce grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 ounce grated mozzarella cheese
  • 8 slices of pepperoni
  • Cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Fry pepperoni in medium-sized skillet until crispy. Remove from skillet and set aside. Wipe skillet with paper towel.
  2. Place one tortilla on a plate and spread two tablespoons of pizza sauce on it.
  3. Sprinkle half of grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese on top of sauce.
  4. Arrange fried pepperoni on top of cheese.
  5. Sprinkle remaining cheese over pepperoni and cover with remaining tortilla.
  6. Spray skillet with cooking spray and preheat over medium heat.
  7. Carefully place quesadilla in skillet and cook three to four minutes on each side or until cheese is melted and tortillas are lightly browned and crispy.

Variations:

  • Use only mozzarella cheese.
  • Instead of pepperoni, use your favorite pizza topping.

This is such a good a idea. We have a neighborhood preschool and we always do snacks for each letter, but some snack ideas are hard to come up with. Thanks.
