Tuna Quesadilla

By: Symone Grady
A great alternative to the usual tuna sandwich, this quesadilla can be made in two different ways: either folded into a pocket or cut into wedges.



2 slices of mozzarella cheese

2 slices of tomato

olive oil for brushing

freshly ground back pepper

3-4 tbsp. canned tuna, drained

1 small soft flour tortilla

Cooking Directions:

Place the mozzarella in the center of the tortilla. Top with the tuna and tomato and fold in the sides of the torilla to make a square pocket.

Brush a skillet with olive oil.

Place the pocket seam-side down in the pan and fry over low heat about 3 minutes, turning once until golden. Let cool before wrapping.

Alternatively, sandwich the filling between two tortillas, cook on both sides in a lightly oiled skillet until the cheese melts and  the tortillas are slightly golden and crisp, then cut into wedges. 


Kick your quesadilla up a notch by adding green peppers and/or avacado.
