Easy Cheesy Quesadillas

I love Mexican food - it's an all-time favorite for me, especially as many of the dishes adapt well to budget cooking and low-fat variations. What's not to love? Here's a quick recipe for some tasty quesadillas:

8 tortillas, corn (flour is okay, too)
1/4 C. shredded colby jack cheese
1/2 C. shredded sharp cheddar
2 tsp. finely chopped onion
1 tsp. finely chopped garlic
1 tsp. dried cilantro

Toss cheeses with spices. On a hot griddle pan, lay down 4 tortillas, toped with cheese mixture, top each with a tortilla. Grill til cheese is melted.

Serve with lettuce, salsa, and sour cream.

Yield = 4 quesadillas or 16 quesadilla wedges (appetizer-style)

Variations: add 1/4 C. shredded pork, chicken, or beef to cheese mixture.
Add 1 C. roasted or raw veggies to cheese mixture, I recommend bell pepper, julienned carrots, onion, mushrooms.
