“I made this up for my daughter, who does not like meat. It is really delicious. It has a more "Italian" feel to it, so salsa is not really good with it, but sour cream or ranch dressing make nice dipping sauces. The ingredients are for ONE quesadilla. I think this would make a really nice appetizer or snack, as well. I make these two at a time on my electric griddle, and pretty much put the filling in a ring around the tortilla - not too close to the center or edge. Once the cheese melts and spreads out a bit, the filling is then perfectly even.”
