Strawberry Cream Cheese Quesadillas

I think quesadillas are totally underrated.  They can be filled with much more than chicken and cheese.  Since a quesadilla is basically a grilled sandwich-it’s perfect for using with leftovers or anything you would typically include in a sandwich. Oh and kids love them! It’s a fun a different way of serving food.  If you find your little one is no longer eating their beloved sandwich or unwilling to move past peanut butter & jelly, try making it in a quesadilla form!  My older son loves them with veggies (peppers, mushrooms, broccoli) and cheese but I also make these strawberry-cream cheese quesadillas which they love and are super delicious!  It’s actually one of my personal favorites too 🍓🍓

Easy instructions:

  1. simply spread lowfat cream cheese on a whole wheat quesadilla.
  2. top with chopped strawberries.
  3. fold the quesadilla in half and grill over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until golden and flip.
  4. Continue grilling for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  5. Also, if you choose other fillings, simply grill the same way until cheese melts (which may require an additional few minutes on each side). Enjoy!
