Frequently Asked Questions

What is a banana quesadilla?

A banana quesadilla is a sweet twist on a traditional quesadilla. Instead of savory ingredients, it is filled with sliced ripe bananas and toppings such as chocolate chips, honey, and cinnamon.

Can I use any type of banana?

It’s best to use ripe bananas for this recipe as they are sweeter and easier to mash. Overripe bananas are perfect for this recipe as they’re soft and flavorful. You can also use plantains if you prefer a slightly different taste and texture.

Do I need a special type of cheese for banana quesadillas?

Not necessarily. You can use any type of shredded cheese that melts well. Some commonly used cheeses for sweet quesadillas include mozzarella, cheddar, and Monterey Jack.

Can I make banana quesadillas ahead of time?

You can prep the ingredients and make the quesadillas ahead of time but they’re best when served fresh off the pan. If you do have leftovers, they can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated in the microwave or oven.

Is a special type of pan needed to make banana quesadillas?

No, you can use a non-stick pan or a regular frying pan to make banana quesadillas. A cast iron skillet can also be used for a crispier crust.

Are banana quesadillas healthy?

Banana quesadillas can be a healthy option when made with whole wheat tortillas, fresh fruits, and natural sweeteners such as honey. However, they can also be high in calories when using excessive amounts of cheese and toppings. As with any recipe, it’s important to keep portion sizes in mind.
