Today is Tara Tyler's blogaversary and she is celebrating! In honor of this momentous occasion, she his having a blogfest where everyone brings their favorite recipe! Yeah food! So pop over to her blog and check out the festivities. She's even giving out prizes.
Here is one of my favorite quick and easy recipes. The kids and their friends love it and it can be modified easily for more adult tastes.
Shredded Mexican cheese
1 can of fat free refried beans
chopped baby spinach (optional)
2 cloves garlic chopped (optional)
1/4 cup red onion slices (optional)
Spread a thin layer of refried beans onto one tortilla. Lay preferred toppings on top of beans. Here you can be really creative. I usually use any veggies I have laying around but my favorites are spinach, garlic, and onion. You could also use chopped cooked chicken. Then sprinkle on your desired amount of cheese and lay a second tortilla on top. Heat a nonstick frying pan to medium but don't put any oil in the pan. Lay quesadilla in pan. When first side is browned carefully flip and cook until other side is browned as well.
Remove from pan and let cool for a minute or two. Then cut with a pizza cutter and serve with salsa and sour cream/plain yogurt and enjoy!
