These scrumptious quesadillas are a quick-fix dinner that can be on the table in just 15 minutes. Put a breakfast spin on a quesadilla night by wrapping fluffy scrambled eggs, tomatoes, cheese and cilantro into a tortilla.
Cook eggs in a large skillet with the tomatoes and cilantro until scrambled, then set the mixture aside. Wipe out the skillet quickly, and then warm tortillas in the same pan. Once warm, spread the egg mixture over one half of the tortilla and top with cheese.
Fold the second half of the tortilla over the top and lightly brown on both sides before serving. Grab this quick quesadilla recipe now!
