This is one of my favorite no-spoons lunches that is not a peanut butter sandwich - but unlike the sandwich, it uses my Secret Weapon.

The toaster oven.

If you don’t have a toaster oven, this is probably not a stoveless meal for you, and also you should get a toaster oven. People praise pressure cookers and rice cookers and nobody talks about the miracle of the toaster oven. It’s like a real oven, except the toast setting automatically shuts off! How is that not amazing.

The only thing I do not absolutely love about my toaster oven is that the designers for the door were morons and you can’t actually clean the stupid thing properly, but I intend to remedy this when we are in a position to acquire a new toaster oven instead of one I got for free when a family friend was moving to a smaller house.

Toaster ovens!!! I love them.

If you don’t have a toaster oven and can’t manage the stove, you could make it in a microwave I guess….

Time: Five minutes?

Stuff You’ll Need

  • Tortillas. I like the fajita size for my toaster oven.
  • Shredded cheese. Any kind, really. Maybe not mozzarella.
  • Whatever else you want to stick on it, I guess?


  1. Open the toaster oven and pull out the rack.
  2. Put one or two tortillas on the rack.
  3. Put shredded cheese on half of the tortilla.
  4. Optional: add whatever else you want on top of the cheese. When I’m feeling ambitious, I add some chili and garlic powders.
  5. Push the rack back in and close the toaster oven.
  6. Set the toaster oven to Toast and a setting like 2. Low, but not the lowest.
  7. Wait for it to beep.
  8. Slide the tortillas onto a plate and fold over the non-cheesy side on top of the cheesy side.

And that’s it! You can cut them into wedges if you feel up to it - and if you’re still hungry afterwards, just do it again.
