Although apples are a fall-time favorite, and apple pies and cobblers are the most popular apple recipes, there are a few unsung apples out there who find their way to a healthy and tasty snack, complete with crunch, cheesy apples and a thin crust to hold it all together. I posted this easy quesadilla recipe on my blog. It is quick, easy, and tasty. It is awesome when still warm, but leftovers are good too for a light lunch, that is, if there are any leftovers!
Ingredients: 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced 1 medium onion, thinly sliced 1/2 cup grated pepper jack cheese A pinch of salt 2 medium sized tortillas (whole wheat) 1 tsp olive oil
Heat olive oil in a small skillet and brown apples and onions until carmelized. Set aside.
Warm a griddle and warm a tortilla until browned.
Spread the apple-onion mixture on the tortilla and top with grated cheese.
Place the other tortilla on the apple-onion mixture and continue to heat until the cheese begins to melt.
Carefully flip over the tortillas and brown the other side.
When browned to your perfection, slide onto a cutting board.
If you can wait until the quesadilla slightly cools, that would be great. If not, cut into wedges and enjoy!!
