Five and Dime FRIDAY!!!! 5 ingredients + 10 Minutes = Lotsa Yum

Lazy Quesadillas

I just had one of these for lunch --- actually for the last two days lunches!

1. Tortillas -- whatever kind you like. My favorite is Ezekiel Sprouted Wheat.
2. Cheese -- Jack, Cheddar, Mexican Cheese Mix
3. Salsa
4. Sliced avocado (or mushed up with salt and lemon)
5. Chopped cilantro and/or flat parsley
6. OPTIONAL: chopped olives, chopped onion, pre-cooked meat

I use my George Foreman grill, which I cannot recommend more highly because there is no fat added when cooking. Other non-fat cooking alternative is pop it in the oven to warm/crisp/melt. But, the Foreman grill is the very best for quesadillas (and for anything you would want to melt or grill, i.e.,grilled cheese and veggie/hot dogs).

If you want extra super deliciousness. Just brush both sides with olive oil and throw on the backyard grill for a couple minutes! And, if you want super-super deliciousness, brush some scallions (with only the very tip cut off) with olive oil and pre-grill those for a couple minutes...then throw the grilled onion inside the quesadilla before you grill it!

No matter how you cook it, it's under 10 minutes and lotsa yum factor.

Bon Appetit!

LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY NOTE: Going on vacation (Vancouver/Whistler) until July 6th so no blog entries during vacation....I'll be back first week in July! Happy INDEPENDENCE to you all!
