Pear Quesadillas

Prep time: 10 minutesCooking time: 10 minutesTotal time: 20 minutes


1 cup
grated cheese (try cheddar, jack, or pepper jack)
1 cup
pear slices (fresh or canned/drained)
1⁄2 cup
finely chopped green or red peppers
2 Tablespoons
minced onion (green, red, or yellow)
4 medium whole wheat tortillas


  1. Divide cheese, pears, peppers and onions between the tortillas, covering about half of each tortilla. Fold each tortilla in half over the filling.
  2. Heat a skillet or griddle to medium (300 degrees in an electric skillet). Place one or two folded tortillas on a dry skillet and heat until cheese melts and the tortilla browns slightly, about 2-4 minutes.
  3. With large spatula, gently turn quesadillas over and cook the other side until a little brown, 2-4 minutes.
  4. Remove to a plate and repeat until all tortillas are heated.  Cut each cooked quesadilla in half and serve.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


  • Put pear cubes on a paper towel for a couple of minutes to help dry them out. This will help your quesadilla stick together!
  • Out of pears? Try diced fresh apples, halved grapes, or even sliced bananas.
  • Flavor boosters: add some chopped cilantro, or use pepper jack cheese.
