okay you guys, i’ve got a little dish to whip up for your valentine or yourself too for that matter. i like to call these cheese quesadillas made with love, check those cute heart cutouts! i actually think that i may have used just a tad too much oil, but they were still delicious nonetheless!

ingredients: {1 serving}
• 1 small to medium-sized flour tortilla
• 3 slices of mild cheddar cheese
• 1 T unsalted butter
• extra-virgin olive oil, just a drizzle
• 1 small heart-shaped cookie cutter
• salsa + hot sauce for serving

to do:
start by taking your flour tortilla and folding it in half. then slice the tortilla into thirds creating 3 triangles. now take each triangle, unfold, and stamp down in the center, only 1 side of the tortilla with the cookie cutter. remove the tortilla heart shapes and set aside. now take your cheese slices and stamp down each with the cookie cutter and remove the cheese heart shapes to set aside as well.

with the remaining cheese, place them inside the tortilla triangles making sure that the cheese is visible through the heart cutouts. heat a skillet on medium with the butter and place each tortilla triangle into the pan. once the cheese has melted a bit, flip over and cook until slightly golden. serve immediately with hot sauce and salsa.

for a sweet finish, and as to not waste any food, add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan as well as the assembled cheese hearts on tortilla heart cutouts. cook until slightly golden and slightly crispy. mmm, enjoy!
