Make it a Meal: 
    • a glass of low-fat milk


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


    1. Lay two tortillas on a clean cutting board or on two plates.
    2. Place 1/4 of the cheese on each tortilla.
    3. Divide pears, peppers, and onion between the two tortillas.
    4. Divide the remaining cheese between the two tortillas. Top with remaining two tortillas.
    5. Heat a pan or griddle to medium. Place one quesadilla in pan. Cook for 2-4 minutes, or until bottom of quesadilla begins to look a little brown.
    6. With large spatula, gently turn quesadilla over and cook the other side until a little brown, 2-4 minutes.
    7. Gently slide quesadilla onto plate. Cook the second quesadilla.
    8. Cut each cooked quesadilla into 4 pieces and serve.
    9. 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.

    These are great! The pear really adds a lot to it!


    The whole family loved these! We used pepper jack cheese, added some chiles and topped with some low-fat sour cream and salsa.
