Leftover Creation: Vegetarian Chicken and Veggie Quesadillas

Day 55.

This is my go-to meal when I'm in a rush to get dinner on the table for the family. Take whatever leftover chicken or black bean meal I had earlier in the week, spoon onto tortillas, top with cheese and another tortilla,  grill on stovetop griddle. Done. So good, quick and easy.

Chicken and Veggie Quesadillas
Leftover Chicken and Veggies (I used leftover Chicken Posole, drained via slotted spoon)
Mexican cheese

Place one tortilla on cooking-sprayed griddle, top with chicken and veggie mix of choice and cheese. Top with another tortilla. Grill until slightly browned, flip and repeat.

If your chicken and veggie mix is on the bland side, kick it up a bit with some taco seasoning or House Seasoning, to taste.

The Results
This is my go-to meal for a reason. We all love quesadillas. These were particularly tasty. Sort of a no-brainer with the spicy Mexican ingredients.

What is your go-to quick meal for your family?
