Place the cut quesadillas in a skillet warmed to med-high and let them warm until slightly browned.
Flip and lightly brown the other side:
To make the quesadillas look more like basketballs, mix black food coloring in with sour cream. Not a sour cream fan? You could also color the guacamole. Not a food coloring fan? You could thinly slice black olives and place on top of the quesadillas. Place the black sour cream in a small Ziplock and make a small snip at one corner to pipe the basketball design on the mini-quesadillas.
Score two for Mom!
This is a perfect basketball snack for fans and players of all ages.
Any basketball players in your household? The most exciting game of our youth basketball season was the game that sent us into the finals of the final tournament last week. With 8 seconds left, down by two, the ball was brought down the court and passed to one of our guys at the top of the key. He took a dribble and step forward with one foot and then looked down at the 3 point line, stepped back and shot. SWISH! We won the game by 1 point. We ended up 2nd in the final tournament and the boys played their little hearts out. It was my second year of coaching and I really like working with the kids and learning their personalities. Enjoy your March Madness and I hope your teams wins.
