Fajita Quesadillas - Tortillas are filled with seasoned veggies and lots of cheese. A quick dinner for any night of the week. {The Girl Who Ate Everything}I don’t cook on Fridays or Saturdays. Sunday through Thursday I cook…a lot. Fridays we usually have date night. Not always, but 99% of the time. I’m a firm believer that you need to date your husband. And Saturdays we take the kids somewhere to eat. But every once in a blue moon, if one of the kids is sick or if we don’t feel like taking our circus out, I’ll whip up something really easy. You can barely call it cooking. It’s a step above eating boxed mac n’ cheese but nothing strenuous.

These Fajita Quesadillas are exactly one of those no-cooking night meals.

I just like both for color if I have them.

My husband, who doesn’t consider it a meal unless meat is present, didn’t even mind that these were meatless. You could definitely add chicken if you want.

  1. I love the idea of this. In fact I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself!

    Now to make a traffic light of dips. Pass the soured cream, guacamole and salsa for dunking rights.

  2. THIS LOOKS YUMMY & VERY EASY. A QUICK DELICIOUS LUNCH OR AFTER SCHOOL SNACK.

  7. So simple, but so great. We all have those night where cooking just is not a priority, and something as tasty as quesadillas would be a refreshing change to quick box dinner with no too much more fuss. Thanks for the suggestion!

  8. Okay – YUM! I’m making these right now and they smell amazing! I am adding chicken to ours because like your husband, it’s not a meal unless there is meat lol! Thank you!

  9. I make these all the time for my boyfriend and myself. They are super easy to make and so yummy. I usually get a rotisserie chicken and slice pieces off and add them to the mix.
