Toddler Meal: Easy Quesadillas


tortillaSince most of us were busy chowing down the Christmas feast on Toddler Meal Thursday, I saved up these Easy Salsa Quesidillas to share with you today. I'll bet you were wondering what to serve for lunch, huh?

Ange0305, owner of the Easy Recipes for Real Moms group, whips this favorite dish up for her two girls, Michela Rose, 5, and Miranda Elizabeth, 3, for lunch or a snack. Her husband Steve loves them too.

"I think these are great because they are super easy, really good, and give you room to adapt to your family's likes and dislikes," Ange0305 says. "Plus, they can be made from taco night leftovers. When I first made these, my oldest was only 2 and she ate three of them!"

My son doesn't like salsa and I want to make sure he gets enough fibre, so when I make quesadillas, I really cheat.  I use two tortillas, spread refried beans on one side and shredded cheese on the other, combine and then pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds, flip, 30 seconds, flip, 30 seconds and they're done.  A pizza cutter works great to slice them up, serve with some avocado and/or corn on the side and he's in heaven!

I've made this before but I wish there was a way to add some fresh cooked veggies in there without her noticing

I use a large flour tortilla and put it in a non stick fry pan. I cover half of it with cheese, salsa, beans or chicken puree if they don't eat chunks. When it gets toasty I fold the half over and press it down. It feeds two of my toddlers(twins) and they can pick it up because it is crispy. Serve with coconut rice.
