Servings: Serves 2
Place tortillas on a work surface and sprinkle all over with cheese. On one half of each tortilla, evenly sprinkle 3 ounces meat. Divide vegetables and spread evenly over meat. If desired, add jalapeños. Fold tortillas over to make 2 half-moon-shaped quesadillas. Wrap tightly in foil to hold together.
When ready to eat, remove from foil, place on a plate, and heat in microwave oven until cheese melts (about 1 to 2 minutes), turning once. Don't overdo the microwave time or the tortilla will toughen. If a toaster oven is available, use it instead, and heat quesadillas until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. If desired, serve with salsa of your choice on the side, and a green salad.
