  • Peanut butter – we prefer creamy
  • Favorite jelly – we used strawberry (or try some of the other flavors in our recipe guide!)
  • Tortilla – you can use whole wheat or corn tortilla
  • Fat-free yogurt or Greek yogurt – optional but recommended for a healthier option!
  • Butter – optional


Heat a skillet over medium. You can add butter and melt it if you want. We didn't use butter today.

Spread peanut butter on one side of the tortilla, top with jelly, and fold in half. Make sure to seal the edges together carefully.

In the skillet, place folded tortilla and heat on each side for about two minutes until lightly browned and warmed all the way through.

Slice into wedges or squares (any shape you desire) to serve!

Makes: Serves one quesadilla – can be doubled or tripled depending on how many you want to make at once!

Serving Size: Four mini-quesadillas per serving as part of an appetizer plate OR

One large quesadilla meal that should satisfy most adults as their main course dish.
