How to Store Leftovers

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. These quesadillas are best served immediately, but can be reheated for leftovers.

Can I Make on Stovetop?

Yes, you can make cheese quesadillas on your stovetop. We like using a cast iron skillet, but you can use any type of skillet.
Heat the skillet to medium heat and spray pan with oil. Place tortilla on skillet and top with cheese. Use spatulas to flip the tortilla so that it cooks both sides.
Once cooked, cut the tortilla in bite size pieces for everyone to enjoy.

We recommend heating the griddle to about 400 degrees. Once you have heated the griddle, make sure to oil it with a high smoke point oil. This prevents the quesadilla from sticking.
