Making the Perfect Quesadillas for My Family

When it comes to food we all like, we are all in an accord: quesadillas sit on top of the list and that is why I got quite good at making quesadillas at home. I notice how there is practically no easier idea than to put together a few quesadillas for a quick dinner, a quick breakfast or a quick afternoon snack. I also prefer making quesadillas at home, then letting my kids eat junk food bought on the street. As I always cook at home, I have my hopes that they will grow healthy and strong, without loading on all the sugary and salty foods the junk food industry is serving at the moment, making people obese and ill.

I am learning right now to make my own tortillas at home, but I am buying from the supermarket readymade tortillas on a regular basis, until I get a proper hold of homemade tortillas. The easiest recipe I know is the one with chicken meat and shredded cheese and my kids absolutely love it. I must say that I am quite good at it and I enjoy the results of my work at least as much as my kids do. I am currently experimenting with some extra ingredients and I am learning what my kids like and do not like.  Here I found some other interesting recipes I will try soon.

The best part about quesadillas is that they can be made with almost anything. Anytime I have chicken meat leftovers from other meals, I put them aside and I let the family know that I intend to make some quesadillas. I also bought a quesadilla maker to help me cook faster and I am more than pleased with the results so far. So this is what I do to create the perfect quesadillas my family enjoys so much.

I take one tortilla and I put it on the quesadilla maker. I load it with small chunks of fried chicken, sliced onions and a few seedless olives, and then I cover everything with shredded cheese. I place another tortilla on top, and then I close the lid on the quesadilla maker, letting everything cook for a few minutes. This way, quesadillas are much easier to make then when using a regular oven, and I can vouch that they are also tastier when made like this. One thing that I clearly like about having a quesadilla maker is that it has nonstick cooking surfaces, which means that I do not need to butter them, to avoid the tortillas from getting burned. This means that I can reduce the number of calories on each quesadilla, and serve my family with a healthier alternative to the original recipe. Reducing fat is very important in order to avoid the development of heart diseases and other health problems, which is why I care so much about providing the family with tasty foods that are also very healthy.
