Tips For Making the Perfect Quesadilla in the Microwave

If you like a crispy quesadilla, then don’t skip the first step! The tortilla will cool a bit after heating up in the microwave, making it slightly crispy.

You can make any mixture of different vegetables, protein, and seasonings that you like. I find that mixing everything in a bowl and heating it up first works best so everything is cooked evenly and so you get the perfect bite every time!

Keep an eye on your quesadilla while it is in the microwave so the cheese does not overcook.
