Apple and Cheddar Quesadilla



 

Apple and Cheddar Quesadilla

It’s been so hot this week, I think I could have placed this outside for a minute or two and the cheese would have melted in a minute. I know that is how we’ve all been feeling.

The hottest it got on my thermometer was 109.

The kids have come home from school looking like dish rags: you know the type of tired old dish rags that you don’t think will take anything else. Those are the ones, wet and worn out and looking all tired that they are on their last let.

I made them some of these and it seemed to help, so did jumping in the pool!

Then of course it’s time for homework and it’s all misery again! But, that is a whole other issue.

I love snacking on cheese and apples so putting them both together inside a toasted up  tortilla is pretty much a perfect snack to me.

It all starts with a Granny Smith Apple,

I sliced it on an spiral apple slicer, and left the skin on.

I use my spiral slicer typically to make apple pies. I do really like the slices on so many things and it’s easy to clean, so I started getting it out more often. There is no sense having these great tools and not using them.  Is there?

I placed a corn tortilla in a hot pan, then placed some grated cheddar cheese, four slices of apple and a bit more cheese, then topped it off with another tortilla, let it cook up and get melted and gooey on a medium heat. Flipped it over, cover it for a minute and it’s all done.

three ingredients and 5 minutes to the gooey wonderful snack!

Tell me what your go to snack is? I’d love to hear about it, leave me a link if you posted about it. I love easy, delicious snacks!

    This is a great snack for the kids after school or anytime. I love the flavor combo. I feel bad for your kids having to go to school in heat like that. I hope it cools off for you guys soon:)

    These sound great, and I like that you use a corn tortilla. This reminds me that when my daughter was younger she used to live on cheese quesadillas. I wish I’d known about these earlier, at least she’d have gotten some fruit! Living in CA we had to endure those scorching hot early school days…no fun for any of us.

    Looks good, and healthy too! These snacks will certainly help make starting school not quite so bad:) I’m glad the temp. is moderate here!

    I love these! I used to eat something similar when I was a kid but in English muffins.
