4 Servings


Serving Size:
2 wedges


  • 4 medium whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup grated cheese (try cheddar or jack)
  • 1 cup pear cubes (fresh or canned/drained)
  • 1⁄2 cup finely chopped green or red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion (green, red, or yellow)


Lay two tortillas on a clean cutting board or on two plates.
Place 1/4 of the cheese on each tortilla.
Divide pears, peppers, and onion between the two tortillas.
Divide the remaining cheese between the two tortillas. Top with remaining two tortillas.
Heat a skillet or griddle to medium (300 degrees in an electric skillet). Place one quesadilla in pan. Cook for 2-4 minutes, or until bottom of quesadilla begins to look a little brown.
With large spatula, gently turn quesadilla over and cook the other side until a little brown, 2-4 minutes.
Gently slide quesadilla onto plate. Cook the second quesadilla.
Cut each cooked quesadilla into 4 pieces and serve.
Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


Put pear cubes on a paper towel for a couple of minutes to help dry them out. This will help your quesadilla stick together!
Out of pears? Try diced fresh apples, halved grapes, or even sliced bananas.
Flavor boosters: add some chopped cilantro, or use pepper jack cheese.
