Lunch time is often boring at our house. Leftovers, rice cooker mac and cheese, and cheese quesadillas are often on the plan. So, in order to change things up a little I have been experimenting with some new lunch recipes.
I have seen several different recipes over the years for tuna quesadillas, but had never tried them until recently. I did not really follow a recipe for this, I just basically took what I use in a tuna sandwich and turned it into a quesadilla.
I was not sure how my kids would like this, but they ended up loving these. And I loved how easy they were to make and serve.
I think these make a great quick and easy lunch or dinner.
Tuna Melt Quesadillas
- 1- 6.4 ounce pouch of tuna ( You could use canned tuna as well, just drain well. )
- 2 tablespoons pickle relish ( You can leave this out if you like.)
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 6 corn tortillas
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- In a bowl mix together the tuna, relish, and mayonnaise.
- Spread on 3 of the tortillas and sprinkle with cheese. Top with remaining tortillas.
- Cook in a pan or griddle over medium heat until lightly browned and cheese starts to melt. This takes about 2 minutes.
- Flip over and continue cooking until cheese is completely melted. This takes 1-2 more minutes.
- Remove from pan and serve.
