Serves: 6-8
Deconstructed Quesadillas
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 oz of ham or cooked chicken breast, cut in small pieces
  • ½ pound mushrooms, sliced and sautéed in 1 tablespoon olive oil with a sprinkle of salt for 10 minutes or until all the liquid evaporates
  • 1 cup of frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 cup of your favorite shredded cheese
  • 12-16 whole wheat tortillas
  1. Pre-heat a frying pan on a medium fire
  2. Place one tortilla on a chopping board or plate and invite each child and grown-up to place their choice of fillings on one side of it. Fold the tortilla in half, covering the filling.
  3. Using a large turner, carefully transfer the tortilla to a frying pan. For big kids and adults, place the plain tortilla on a pan first and ask them to add their choice of filling to the tortilla then.
  4. Heat the tortilla on medium heat until the filling is heated through and cheese has melted.
  5. Carefully transfer on a chopping board and slice into triangles using a knife or a pizza cutter.
  6. Enjoy!
