Pepperoni Quesadilla

Posted by Angiefairbanks at 12:00 AM
I know that this sounds really weird but trust me my little boy loves them. My sister in law invented this recipe when she was looking for something for her daughter to eat for lunch. She called it a peperoni burrito but its not really a burrito and when I told my son it was a burrito he told me, "No it isn't a burrito mom!" You see, we are from New Mexico and my 3 year old son is already versed in all things Mexican food. My sister in law is a Texan and to her calling it a burrito was fine but not to my 3 year old New Mexican son. Side note, this is not by any means a mexican dish but oh well, he eats it and eats every bite of it so who cares. Any parent of a 3 year old pick eater can understand that theory.

Take a fajita sized tortilla and sprinkle a little bit of mozerella cheese on half of it. Next, layer pepperoni on the cheese and follow it up with a little bit more cheese. Now fold the tortilla in half to make a quesadilla. Microwave for 15 seconds and then flip it over and microwave for 15 seconds more. Serve with pizza sauce to dip with, if your child has a dipping fixation like most kids.

***I put cheese on both sides of the pepperoni so that the tortilla has something to hold it together when it is folded into half. If you only put cheese down once the tortilla won't stay shut. To keep it from getting too cheesy just put a little cheese down at a time.

I'm telling you, my son loves this meal. Serve it with kid friendly fruit (mandarin oranges) and a vegetable and it makes a really good meal. Plus for mommy, its freaking easy and takes like a whole 2 minutes to make.
