Southwest Layered Quesadillas Recipe

 Day 132.

Today's recipe is brought to you primarily by my husband. He saw it in his heart to make the sick kids and sick mommy lunch today. He suggested quesadillas and I asked for yummy layered Southwest Taco Salad in mine. Then I thought, "Hey, that's a leftover creation. Score!"

That's a great go-to leftover meal. Insert leftovers between two tortillas with some shredded cheese. Grill. Done.

(You know what proportions you like. No need to measure.)

Spray griddle or pan with non-stick spray. Toss half of your tortillas onto grill, top with Southwest Salad and cheese. Cover with other half of tortillas. Grill for about 3 minutes per side.

The Results
Mmmm. This is fantastic! I love it. So simple and delicious.

  1. Sounds so good! How sweet of your hubby to take care of you. I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for linking up on Recipes I Can't Wait to Try!

  2. Visiting through At Home with Haley's "Recipes I Can't Wait to Try". I have to say I've been seeing over the last many yeaars, many 7 layer salads and have never made one. This recipe has inspired me to do so. I love the fact that you thought to make a quesadilla with it. Bravo. Quesadillas can often be so boring. This is a must try for me. Thanks.
    Also hope everyone is feeling better now.

  3. What a great idea for making good use of left-overs! Thank you for the tips :)

  4. That sounds wonderful! Thank you!
