Thank for the reminder. I havn't had corn tortillas in ages. I just added them to my grocery list. I buy local ones that are made fresh daily.

Breakfast quesadillas are good too --- scrambled eggs, diced sausage, bacon, ham, cheese, tomato, avocado, etc. Try making a peanut butter and jelly quesadilla ---- yum! Have fun and enjoy!
Love these suggestions! I just tried making a cheese quesadilla and it came out pretty well. Do you use any sort of press to get the cheese to melt evenly? I tried my cast iron bacon press but it was way too heavy!

No need for a press. Put the cheese directly on the tortilla then add the other ingredients. It will melt fine.

You can put a lid on the skillet to speed things up if you think the tortilla might burn before the ingredients warm and the cheese melts.

My MIL found this combo in a newspaper or magazine. They are really good. You use cooked chicken, sliced mango, diced brie, a bit of chopped cilantro, and some finely chopped, pickled jalapenos (patted dry). Sauce: 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 tsp lime zest, 2 tsp lime juice.

Glad this will work. I think it also might help keep the tortillas moist.

I don't have a microwave, so I think I'll try putting the tortillas directly on the burner and see what happens. Do you use metal tongs or a metal spatula for this?
I'm a risk taker so I just use my fingers and do it quickly lol. But I have an electric range so I rarely get to do this anyway.
