Olive and Cheese Quesadilla

Had some tortilla, lazy me wanted to make easy Quesadilla. With some Pitted Olives and Shredded Cheese  tried a easy version and it tasted amazing. Very Easy to cook and it tastes delicious with Guacamole/ Sour Cream/ Salsa


Olive and Cheese Quesadilla:

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 5 mins | Serves : 1

Recipe Category: Entree


Wheat Tortilla – 2

Pitted Olives – 2 tbsp

Grated Cheese – 2 tsp (I used cheddar and mozzarella)

Butter/ Oil – as needed


  • Grease the skillet with Ghee / butter and place the tortilla in the greased skillet
  • Spread the Olives and cheese on one tortilla and cook. After 1 min, cover the spread with one more tortilla and let it cook for 1 min. Cook the other side as well


  • Transfer the Quesadilla into serving plate and cut. Serve it with Guacamole / Sour cream / Tomato salsa


My Notes:

  • I have placed the fillings after keeping the tortilla in the skillet. Instead, you can choose to fill the tortilla on a plate and then place it on the skillet
  • If knife is not sharp you can even cut the cooked Quesadilla with knife (I followed this procedure)
