A few days ago Wesley and I went out to eat with some friends (baby was visiting with his great grandparents). We went to our favorite local Mexican restaurant and on the way there I decided that I was going to branch out from my typical enchilada plate. Normally when I decide to branch out, I am disappointed with my choice, so naturally Wesley questioned if I really wanted to try again. I did. And boy am I glad that I did! My friend and I both decided on getting an ‘Arizona Quesadilla’. DE- LI-CIOUS!
Not only was I pleasantly surprised with branching out and liking what I ordered, I was also excited because I had leftovers for the next day.
And that’s when it happened.
You know when you flippantly throw a comment out there and you expect your spouse to understand what you mean? So you go no further in explaining said comment? Well- I had told Wesley as we pulled up to the house, ‘We need to grab the groceries and then don’t forget the leftovers.’
I got out the car with an arm full of groceries, put them away, and then hopped in the shower. We both went to bed soon after and the next morning, I got up to go to my barre class, opened my car door and there they were. Our leftovers. Sitting sadly in the back seat.
I took them inside and threw them away. We had both assumed that the other person had gotten the leftovers. (What happens when you assume?????) I was so sad. I had been dreaming about those leftovers . Then I decided I could easily recreate the quesadilla, so after barre, I went to the store and got the ingredients.
That night, we had the best darn quesadilla around! So good & super easy! I also feel like it is a fairly ‘light’ meal! Yummo!! Here’s what I did:
- 4-6 tortillas
- 3 grilled chicken breasts, diced
- black beans
- pico de gallo
- shredded cheese
- Sour Cream (optional)
- Guacamole (optional)
- 1. Take butter and melt in a pan.
- 2. Place a tortilla in the pan and add chicken, black beans, cheese, and pico de gallo to half.
- 3. Allow cheese to melt, and then fold the tortilla in half and flip to the other side.
- 4. Let all ingredients heat up, and the tortilla get crispy.
- 5. Remove from pan once it is done to your liking.
- 6. Repeat for as many quesadillas as you'd like.
- 7. Serve on a plate with some sour cream and guacamole.
- *E*A*S*Y! and Good!!!
