Avocado & Cheese Quesadilla

September 22, 2009


I hadn’t even thought about adding this on as a recipe until I realized that we made FOUR of these quesadillas just this week alone. This means 3 things to me_ 1) I’m pretty sure that kids will love them because Kenya hasn’t stopped asking for them, 2) for me to be so happy making them must mean they only take minutes to throw together and 3) they’re perfect for anyone on a budget because they’re made with some of the staples I always seem to have laying around the house. This recipe costs me just over $1.50 for 2 servings and there are never leftovers. I call that a recipe worth making again and again!
