If you are tired of the same peanut butter and jelly sandwich and are looking for something different and exciting, then we got you cover here. My family enjoys peanut butter & Jelly, but they do get tired of the same boring pb&j sandwich. A delicious peanut butter & jelly quesadilla is what make and we will show you how to make it.
So be creative and spice things up we make Peanut Butter & Jelly quesadilla, though it doesn't have cheese but you know what I mean. This is a very simple recipe to make, and you can also make it in many different ways. This is what I like about this peanut butter & jelly quesadilla because my kids (and adults alike) will make it differently and you will learn why.
The basic ingredients:
- Peanut butter – we use Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
- favorite jelly or jam – we used Smucker’s Strawberry Jam
- Fat-free yogurt or Greek yogurt – optional
- Heat a skillet over medium. You can add butter and melt it if you want. We didn't for this recipe.
- Spread peanut butter on one side of the tortilla, top it with jelly and fold in half.
- In the skillet, place folded tortilla and heat 2 minutes on each side until lightly brown. Depending on how picky your kid because my child only wants it warm not brown, but whatever! LOL
- Remove from skillet.
- Slice into wedges.
OK for the extra ways to make this peanut butter & jelly quesadilla:
- Do not add the jelly inside the peanut butter and use the jelly as a dip instead.
- Add bananas or whatever fruit you desire inside the quesadilla.
- Use the yogurt as a dipping sauce with your peanut butter & jelly quesadilla.
