A casual Quesadilla luncheon - with recipes




Greetings and Salutations
Sweet Friends,

So how are ya today???

I am happy to report I have been
feeling mucho better the last 2 days.

I happened to find these pictures I took
for a Tablescape Thursday post last year
when hubby was laid off.  Never wound
up posting them,  think they just got lost
in my mass of photos,  so lucky for you, lol
I just happened on them!

Just a casual Quesadilla luncheon for Two!
They really aren't all that exciting but figured
 what the hey, I would post them anyway.  
If they bore you.....you can just move on!!  lol


We love us some mexican food!



If you have never made quesadillas,  they are
sooo easy.





Chicken/Cheese Quesadillas


Get some tortillas, then grab a skillet,
  spread a lil margarine (heart healthy margarine) 
on one side of each tortilla, 

 then put one tortilla in the pan, and place cooked
 chicken pieces. (I used rotisserie chicken usually)
 and cheese on top, then add the other tortilla on
 top of chicken and cheese. After a minute or so, 
Smush it with the pancake turner to make sure
 the cheese has melted some to sort of meld
 it all together.

After the bottom tortilla browns, flip the whole
thing over and brown the other side. Then remove
 from pan and slice with a pizza cutter.


We love Blue Corn Chips with flaxseeds
 with our Salsa

we get them at Target,  they are the
 Archer Farms Brand



and what would quesadillas be with out some
 sour cream, and guacamole (sometimes I make
 my own and sometimes I use wholly Guacamole)          
from the store. it is really not hard to make 
either.


Fresh Guacamole


Just peel an avocado, and smash it up 
with a fork,


then dice up tomatoes very small, and 
add them in


and add granulated garlic to taste


and add just a lil lemon or lime juice





and Homemade Salsa to go with your chips!!





Salsa is very easy too.


Homemade Salsa


You can either use


1-15oz. can of diced tomatoes 
or fresh tomatoes


1/2 a large onion


granulated garlic powder to taste
(the more the better, I always say)


Cilantro to taste


I just throw all the ingredients in, and whirl them
 all up in my trusty magic bullet,  and in minutes,
 we have fresh, delicious salsa....

You can use a blender as well,  I would think!



Hungry Yet???  I am!!!  lol


Was gonna make this a Tablescape
Thursday post,  but since it is more
food than tablescape, changed my
mind..................


Oh Well...................


It is what it is.......lol


Have a Whimsical Wednesday!


Love,  Hugs, and
Yummy Quesadilla Blessings,
Nellie

Q's are in the appetizer section of our local restaurant's menu. It is one of my favorite things to eat there. I've never made them at home. You make it sound SO easy :) Thanks, Nellie.

I have tasted your yummy food before! It is um um good!

I've got mustard greens cooking right now. The smell is making me hungry!

I went and bought some more food from the 5 food colors, but I forgot the sweet potatoes. Dr. Oz has gotten me started on a good thing! I also love the flat bread you got me started on! Great sandwiches, toasted or not!

I got a good bill of health from my physical this year. Blood sugar, 92; chol. 118 good, tri 78, LDL 78 which she said was excellent!
I need to take some vitamin D. My eating has brought on great results! (Thanks to you for your recipes!)

Love to you all,
Susan
