“Yet another quesadilla recipe and another way to use up some of that left over ham :o) This recipe is super-easy, fast, and good for a snack to hold you over. Can be served as an appetizer or main course depending on the amount of ingredients you use and the size of the tortilla. *Be sure to watch over the tortilla as it cooks rather quickly*”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix the diced ham, green onions, and spices until thoroughly combined.
  2. Heat a large cast iron frying pan to medium-high heat, then add oil and butter (the oil maintains the high burning point so you don't easily burn your tortilla).
  3. Heat the tortillas, flipping over about every 10 seconds until air bubbles form. This should take under a minute for the 2 tortillas.
  4. Turn the heat down to low.
  5. Add the cheese and spiced ham mixture to one half of the tortilla and cover the frying pan.
  6. After a little than less than a minute, the cheese should be melted. If so, cover the ham/cheese mix with the other half of the tortilla.
  7. The tortilla should be browned by now, if not flip over the quesadilla and brown to your taste.
  8. Serve with side dishes if desired and enjoy!
