These are very yummy. I'm a wimp when it comes to hot things though, so I use mild green chiles instead of the jalapenos. Also, I usually cook them in a skillet, one at a time, instead of baking them in the oven. The recipe is easily adaptable to whatever ingredients you have on hand - works well with leftover chicken, turkey, beef, whatever.


8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1 pound cooked pork roast, chopped
1 cup reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
1 jalapeno pepper to taste, seeded and minced
1/4 cup minced onion
4 tablespoons minced cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Tomato salsa

In large bowl, stir together the pork, cheese, peppers, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper. Arrange one-eighth of the filling on each tortilla, covering half of it. Fold the tortilla over to make a half- moon. Place quesadillas, not touching, on shallow baking pans. Bake in a 500 degree F oven until tortillas are crisp and golden; about 5 minutes. Transfer to large cutting board and cut into wedges to serve with salsa.

Irene, I had thought of pulling up the old letters every once in a while and seeing if anyone would add to them.

Hello Melissa, "Q" is for quiche! Its easy to make. One pie crust. Mix about six eggs and a 1/2 cup of milk together. Pour mixture into pie crust. Sprinkle some grated cheese over the top. Cook at around 300- 325 degrees in a preheated oven until toasty on top!

Variations of this quick meal can be made by adding spinach, or ham, or onions or whatever your favorite is!

Bon Appetit!

Ernest that was the easiest quiche recipe I have ever seen! gives me incentive to try it. When I have seen them before they always seem so complicated, so I thank you very much!
