Quesadillas are the hero of back-pocket meals — quick, satisfying and suitable for anytime of day. This baked version is easy to batch cook for a family and any leftovers make an easy meal the next day. You’ll love its combo of shredded chicken, spiced green chiles, ooey-gooey cheese and of course the zesty ranch kick. Be sure to take it to the next level of deliciousness with a side of guacamole and salsa.

From the preschool principle of exploring senses (what does each ingredient taste and smell like?) to lessons for elementary age kids in life science principles (where do dairy products like cheese, milk and butter come from?) and middle schoolers following a recipe using the scientific method (hypothesis: This quesadilla is tasty!). Let’s explore how science and cooking are intertwined, shall we?
