Simple Breakfast Quesadillas


Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 3


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 medium (8 inch) tortilla
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp chopped green onion
  • 1 tsp chopped pickled jalapeño
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 1 tsp sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp guacamole or salsa sauce
  • Pinch of salt, black pepper


  1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the sour cream, salt and black pepper. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture chopper green onions, jalapeño, and cook, stirring often, until the eggs are just set, about 2 minutes.
  2. In a separate, large skillet, warm the tortilla over medium heat, flipping occasionally. Once the pan and tortilla are warm, sprinkle one-half of the cheese over one-half of the tortilla. Top the cheese with scrambled eggs, guacamole and press the empty tortilla halve over the toppings. Let the quesadilla cook until golden and crispy.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board. Let it cool for a few minutes to give it time to set, then slice each quesadilla into 2-3 slices with a very sharp knife. Serve immediately, with your favorite sauce.
