15 Minute Quesadillas
This is my 15 minute quesadilla recipe! You may think it’s impossible but the trick is in prepping while you are cooking. I love these quesadillas and is my go to meal when I’m feeling lazy but want something tasty too. This is a vegetarian dish but you can definitely add in meat which might take a bit longer to cook. This recipe is pretty open ended on what vegetables you want to use and also which sauces you mix in.
Sometimes if I want to make this recipe even easier I chop up all the ingredients and keep them ready before I plan on cooking these quesadillas which cuts down on the time.
Chopping the vegetables while the onions and tomatoes are cooking makes this recipe quick
Cook the quesadilla on the pan till the cheese melts to enjoy the melted cheese oozing out of the quesadilla when you slice it.
Prep time: 5-10 min Cook time: 15 min Serves: 2-3
1 medium onion (1 ½ cup sliced onions)
3 cloves of garlic
3-4 green chilis
1 green pepper
250 gms mushroom
1 tsp red chili powder/ paprika
1 tbsp hot sauce
10 small tortillas
200 gm grated Mexican cheese blend
1 tsp salt
Start by heating 2 tbsp of oil in a pan. Once the oil heats up add garlic and green chili, sauté until garlic is light brown.
Add in the onions chopped lengthwise, sprinkle a pinch of salt and cook for about 3-4 min until they turn soft.
Add the chopped tomatoes, sprinkle another pinch of salt and let’s it cook for about 2 minutes till they turn soft.
Before adding the vegetables add 1 tsp of red chili powder and 1 tbsp of hot sauce. Mix this in well and add the vegetables and remaining salt. Let the vegetables cook.
When they are almost cooked we need to heat up a frying pan on medium flame to put together our quesadilla.
Heat 2 tortillas on the pan on each side for 3-4 secs. Take on tortilla on the pan add a layer of cheese. As soon as the cheese starts melting add in stuffing and some more cheese on top and add another tortilla on top.
Carefully flip the quesadilla. When tortillas of the quesadilla look cooked take it off the pan. Slice it up and serve hot.
