Hot Banana Goodness

I hope that this in keeping with the theme, if it is not the mod can let me know and the post can be deleted. I count these as sandwiches because they have a bread like substance on both sides. I originally got this recipe here but I am repeating it because I have now had personal experience with it and I wanted to share the deliciousness.

Banana Quesadillas

1 ripe banana, thinly sliced
lime or lime juice
pepper jack cheese sliced thinly or grated (you can use monterey jack instead but if you do you will want some green chilies to spice things up)
tortillas (I used whole wheat)

Put a skillet on medium high heat. Drop in some of your favorite cooking oil. When the pan is hot place a tortilla in the pan, heat on one side for a moment. Flip tortilla over. Cover one half with banana slices, sprinkle with lime juice. Cover with cheese. Fold other half of tortilla over the cheese. Flip the whole thing to melt the cheese. Flip a few more times until the whole thing is warm and the desired tortilla color. I like them slightly browned and crispy all over.

I ate mine with some Wild Oat's brand medium salsa. I think that sour cream would also make a delicious topping. The banana and cheese combo sounds weird at first but trust me it is delicious. This sandwich would also be equally good at breakfast time.

Simple Variation

some thin banana slices
lime juice
2 small corn tortillas
plain yogurt

Briefly heat one side of one of the tortillas in the pan you just cooked your quesadillas in, no need to add more oil unless you want to. Take that tortilla out of the pan and heat one side of the other. Flip that tortilla over. Cover completely with banana slices. Sprinkle with lime juice. Cover with the browned half of the other tortilla. Then flip the whole thing a few times until it is the desired brownness. It won't get very brown unless you add more oil. I prefer them this way. Take out of the pan and place on a cutting board. Using a large knife as a cleaver chop into four pieces. Place on a plate and cover with plain yogurt. This is an amazing breakfast.
