Cooking | Quesadilla Wraps Perfect for Lunchbox
It’s back to school and for many, packing lunches is back on the daily list of chores. My daughter used to be pretty easy when it came to lunches, a sandwich was perfectly acceptable – but some time last year she decided she didn’t like sandwiches! While I still pack a sandwich once in a while, I have also started to pack these Quesadilla wraps.
I used to make Quesadillas as a fast weekend lunch. Grab some tortillas, some salsa, veggies, chicken and cheese and a hot pan is all I needed. These yummy wraps are just as easy.
1 tortilla wrap (medium or large depending how much your child eats)
cooked veggies of choice (onions, peppers, corn). Leftovers work really well here.
Shredded chicken, optional
Grated sharp cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
Sour cream (optional)
Heat your pan and get all your ingredients ready. Put your tortilla into your hot pan. Spread a small amount of salsa on your tortilla (don’t go all the way to the edge). Top with small amount of veggies, chicken and about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Add a dollop of sour cream.
After you’ve placed all of your ingredients and the tortilla is heating up, use your spatula to fold your tortilla from all four sides, making it look like a burrito. Carefully flip your wrap and have the hot pan ‘toast’ your tortilla. The heat will stabilize your wrap and will make your cheese melt.
These taste great warm or at room temperature. Some people don’t like to heat up sour cream – if you don’t, you can omit the sour cream in the wrap and add a little container of sour cream for dipping in the lunch box. Enjoy!
