Apple Quesadilla



Not too long ago we were in the mood to experiment in the kitchen. We had bought a bunch of green apples on sale and tried something we never tried before! We made apple quesadillas! We love the crunchiness of the apples with the creaminess of the cheese. Serve this as a snack, appetizer or dinner!

Ingredients for one quesadilla:
1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
2 flour tortillas (6 inch size)
1 tablespoon of chopped green apple
1 teaspoon of butter
1 lemon
Kitchen Essentials:
Cutting board
Knife
Vegetable peeler
Pizza cutter
Spatula
Non-stick pan
Measuring cups and spoons
Small bowl

Prep:
Peel, core and chop the green apple. Place in a small bowl and squeeze some lemon juice over the apple to prevent browning.

Directions:
Place the non-stick pan over medium heat on the stove and allow for the pan to heat up. After a minute or two, add the butter and allow it to melt. Grab a flour tortilla and place it on the pan. Move the flour tortilla around so that it get coated with the butter. Add the mozzarella cheese and apple and top with the second flour tortilla. Cook it for about two minutes, until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese begins to melt. Flip it, and do the same for the other side. Remove from the pan and place on a cutting board. Cut immediately with a pizza cutter and serve! Your quesadilla will be crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside! We love to eat it with a dollop of sour cream.

  2. We actually got the idea because when we make cheese fondu, we use green apples, so a little light bulb turned on! =)

  12. I never would have thought of putting apples in quesadillas but it makes sense. One of the best panini I ever had was with apple, black forest ham and brie. Brilliant!
