These tortilla wedges are made with flour tortillas, Cheddar and Mozzarella cheeses, and sliced tomatoes. Serve as a snack with small bowls of sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese, part skim milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro, or more
  • 3 to 4 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced 
  • 8 flour tortillas, (10-inch, or burrito size)
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream or guacamole
  • 1 cup salsa

Preparation:

In medium bowl, combine the cheeses, green onions, and cilantro; mix well. Divide the cheese mixture among 4 of the tortillas then top with the thinly sliced tomatoes. Top each tortilla with another tortilla.

In a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook each quesadilla for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese melts. Transfer each to a plate. With a serrated knife, cut each tortilla sandwich into 8 small wedges.

Serve with small bowls of sour cream or guacamole and salsa.

Makes 32 snack wedges.
