Peach Quesadillas

I’m under the impression that just about anything is better when stuffed inside of a tortilla with some cheese and cooked to a crisp in a hot skillet (aka “quesadilla-ed”). So, just after I whipped up my Chipotle Peach Salsa, I quesadilla-ed it for lunch. It was PERFECT. A nice, light yet satisfying lunch. I only had small “fajita size” tortillas on hand so that is what I based my pricing on. They’re pretty small so two quesadillas might be a more realistic lunch (I was snacking/taste testing during the salsa making process so one quesadilla did me good).

If you’re the carnivorous type, stuff a couple slices of ham or grilled chicken in there with the salsa and cheese. Smokey, salty ham seems like it would be absolutely perfect with the sweet, spicy salsa!

  • 1 small flour tortilla ($0.09)
  • 1/4 cup Chipotle Peach Salsa ($0.23)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese ($0.23)


  • Sprinkle half of the cheese over one half of the tortilla. Top with the salsa then the remaining cheese. The cheese acts as glue so I put it on the top and bottom.
  • Fold the tortilla in half over the fillings and place in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the quesadilla on each side until it is brown an crispy. The End!
