Cheesy Casedilla w/ Cilantro and Green Onions

This is a very simple way to prepare a quick lunch. I love the flavors of cilantro and green onions, especially with cheese. The grilled tortillas smell so great, too. My little boy loves it, too! So that's always a plus. Sometimes, I don't really feel like cooking something up for lunch but this one is quick and simple enough for me to make.

Cheesy Casedilla w/ Cilantro and Green Onions

Ingredients:
for 1-2 servings

2 flour tortillas
1/2 cup Mexican cheese or cheddar cheese
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped in big chunks
1/2 green onion, chopped
Cooking spray or butter

Directions:

Spray a flat pan with a cooking spray or butter it and heat over medium heat. Place one tortilla on the pan and spread the cheese on the tortilla. Then add the cilantro leaves and green onions. Place the second tortilla on top of the cheese and wait until the cheese starts to melt. Carefully, flip the tortillas to grill the top tortilla. Grill until both sides of the tortillas turn golden brown. Cut into 4 pieces and enjoy!!
