DESSERT QUESADILLA

Needless to say when I received this package last week from Mission Foods of their newest Super Soft Tortillas I was pretty darn happy. I love tortillas for all types of meals from quesadillas to burritos to enchiladas. I will say that these Dessert Quesadillas are a new favorite in my house! 

Who doesn’t love a warm, toasted tortilla with chocolate, bananas and strawberries in it. This quesadilla works great as a snack for the kids after school or a special breakfast.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS DESSERT QUESADILLA?

TORTILLAS: The tortillas will hold the ingredients together and create a crispy shell for the fruit, peanut butter and chocolate.

FRUIT: This recipe uses strawberries and bananas. You can use any fruit you like. 

CHOCOLATE: The chocolate is the best part, right? I like to use chocolate chips because they are small and melt nicely. Try dark chocolate for a little healthier version!

PEANUT BUTTER: The peanut butter adds protein and a creamy texture. You can leave it out if you like. 

When I crave sweets, I like to have some sort of fruit mixed in to balance it out. When you take a bite of a this quesadilla, you get a bite of chocolate, peanut butter, banana and strawberry all at once. It is heavenly!

If there is one thing that bothers me with tortillas, it is when they are hard, don’t roll or fold easily, and end up cracking.  Or how about when you are eating a wrap and everything just comes falling out because the tortilla is hard to manage?  These new super soft tortillas are just what they say – super soft, easy to work with to create all of those things you love to use tortillas for.

HOW DO I MAKE A DESSERT QUESADILLA?

Set your oven to 350 degrees, grab two tortillas and rub one side of each tortilla with olive oil.

Lay out your bottom tortilla (olive oil side on the cutting board) and set the top tortilla to the side.

Spread the peanut butter on the tortilla. You could also use almond butter or nutella.

Slice the banana and lay the slices over the peanut butter.

time to cook Dulce Quesadilla

Transfer the quesadilla onto a baking sheet with aluminum foil and sprinkle the top of the quesadilla with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (flipping over at 7 minutes). Make sure the chocolate melted on the inside.  Remove from the oven and wallah! You can also use a skillet.
