Make Easy Quesadillas for a Quick Lunch!
We made an awesome fun and frugal homeschool lunch the other day.
We had leftover roasted chicken and I shredded and chopped that up:
My favorite quesadillas have mushrooms and spinach with chicken:
Some other yummy mixin’s are fruit. Cheese, fruit, and chicken! oh yeah
We buy blocks of cheese when they’re on sale and shred as we need. Colby Jack is perfect for quesadillas! Cholula is our favorite hot sauce.
I lay a tortilla in the warm pan and sprinkle shredded cheese and chicken and then cover it with another tortilla. I have just plain cheap ole flour tortillas here, but you can substitute that for your own homemade ones, GF, or whatever you like.
After a few minutes, flip with a large spatula to desired doneness and make sure the cheese is melty goodness.
Serve with sour cream and homemade canned grilled salsa!
I like my quesadillas on the crispy side:
Look at all that melty yumminess inside:
And then, of course, the boy has to peel and chop up a carrot.
The whole meal is quick and simple. The kids can do it all on their own.
What are your favorite frugal, fun, and quick lunches?
