FAJITA QUESADILLA

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 are exactly one of those no-cooking night meals.

INGREDIENTS

  • TORTILLAS
  • BELL PEPPERS
  • CHEESE – I use Mexican shredded cheese but you can use PepperJack cheese for a spicy version.
  • ONION – The filling is made with sautéed onion and I like to use a yellow onion but you could use red onions.
  • FAJITA SEASONING
  • TOPPINGS: sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, fresh cilantro

You could use all green bell pepper or all red bell pepper.  I just like colorful bell peppers.

A little butter in a large skillet makes the flour tortillas perfectly golden brown.

The crunchy tortilla with the fajita mixture inside is best for busy days!

Serve them with your favorite fajita toppings. Sour cream and guacamole are a must. 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.

ADD SOME PROTEIN

Sure you can up the protein in these and add some rotisserie chicken to make these chicken fajita quesadillas. Any leftover cooked chicken will work.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH THIS
