Have you noticed how kids love to help in the kitchen? When it’s time to start dinner, I usually have a few volunteers to help make dinner.
That’s why I love fun kid-friendly recipes like this easy quesadilla recipe. These quesadillas are the perfect kid-friendly recipe to teach kids the basics of cooking for themselves. Plus you and the kids can have fun making cute designs like these heart-shaped quesadillas.

Quesadilla recipes are perfect for kids learning to cook. They have simple ingredients and they don’t take long to make. Also, kids can choose to include the toppings they like and make their quesadillas unique.
You can add to the fun with this recipe by using differently shaped cookie cutters. Don’t have a heart cookie cutter? No problem, try some animal shapes or even circles, triangles and other geometric shapes can be fun.
Here are a few fun cookie cutters you can try:
