Happy Friday! Hope you had a fantastic week. Weeknights can be so hectic which brings me to another great 20 minute meal. Today I’m taking leftovers and transforming them into something different. How about making quesadillas with some leftover taco meat. Today I’m holding the cheese and making a great quick and easy dinner.
Some people cannot live without cheese and I use to be one of those people. If you cannot live without it then by all means add it. I’m just here to show you that you can have a quesadilla without cheese. Yes, I know cheese is in the name of the dish but believe me you will not miss it.
I’m all about trying to find quick and easy dinner ideas. I love to cook at home but I don’t want to spend the entire day in the kitchen. One of the things I learned from my mother is to cook for an army. I have no idea how it happens but there are always left overs. Instead of throwing them out at the end of the week, I try to find creative ways to bring them back to life. With small tweaks sometimes it can be done.
Take some left over shredded chicken taco meat, black beans, corn, onions, salsa, and a tortilla. Place it on a panini press and presto you have a quesadilla ready to eat. Seriously, if you need the cheese, add it. It’s about reusing those left over items in the fridge and throwing away less.
Sometimes the simplest thing is all we need. Make it a complete meal by cooking up some rice. It will totally fill you up. What do you do with left overs? I would love to hear all about it in the comments below. Thank you so much for taking the time out to read this. Your support really means a lot!
