Cheesy Quesadilla (One Recipe, Multiple Possibilities)
Quesadillas are a quick and easy way to use leftovers in your refrigerator for a healthy, delicious meal.
This recipe gives you plenty of ideas to consider: peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, beef, chicken or shrimp. You can garnish it with your favorite toppings, such as salsa, avocado or some healthy non-fat Greek yogurt to make this delicious dish a sure winner.
Add a sneaky hidden veggie
Adding pureed veggies is a great way to get even the pickiest of eaters (kids or adults) to eat their veggies! They’ll get all the benefits of veggies without you receiving any pushback.
Simply head to the baby food aisle, choose a pureed veggie (carrots, squash, sweet potato), and add a tablespoon or two inside each quesadilla. Your family will never know that there are hidden veggies inside.
Make it fun by allowing your kids to get creative and add their favorite ingredients. Encourage them to choose at least ONE veggie to add to their quesadilla.
Not only are quesadillas easy to make and extremely versatile, but they’re also freezer-friendly. While the ingredients are out and the dishes are dirty, why not make more to freeze for future meals?
Allow the cooked quesadillas to cool completely. Individually wrap each quesadilla in aluminum foil. Place wrapped quesadillas in a large freezer bag, remove excess air from bag and seal. Label your bag and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat.
For busy evenings, having homemade frozen quesadillas on hand, that can be popped in the microwave or toaster oven in a pinch, is massively helpful.
