Yesterday we had one of those exhausting school mornings: toddlers keep interrupting; no one can concentrate; mental meltdown. I think this picture says it all:

You can’t just hand out PB & Js after a morning like that, right? We needed something different. Opening the refrigerator, I spied the Queso Fresco…

I had purchased some once, anticipating amazing Mexican-restaurant-worthy queso dip. Wrong. Queso Fresco will soften, but not melt when heated, leaving you with some seriously disgusting cheese dip. Yuck.

This time my husband had purchased it, thinking amazing Mexican-restaurant-worthy cheese dip. I Googled it because I knew this cheese must be good for something (besides disgusting cheese dip). Quesadillas! My kids love cheese quesadillas, as any employee at our local Moe’s could tell you.

We have a quesadilla maker, but instead I decided to whip them up Moe’s-style: on the grill.

I recommend you add the cheese before you place them on the grill, since Queso Fresco is a crumbly mess. Serve plain or with salsa and sour cream.

I already have requests to make them again today! How do you beat the lunchtime blahs?
