Quick and Easy Quesadillas – Perfect Meal for Kids!
Kids love quesadillas – both to eat them AND to help fill them! Most important, let your kids get creative. Switch up the fillings, add your favorite dressings/sauces, and share with friends and family for a perfect quick-and-easy meal. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
- Try using fresh basil, leftover meatballs (crumbled) and eta cheese for an Italian-inspired quesadilla.
- Add a bit of salsa and/or fresh chiles to the High-Protein Guacamole for a spicier touch.
- Use leftover pulled pork in place of the shredded chicken for a pulled pork grilled quesadilla.
If you’re in Phase 1 or 2, or you’d like to cut down on the processed carbs – try our Keto-Friendly (no grain) Tortillas.
View the Notes section below to find the Phase 1, 2, and 3 full meal plans. You’ll also find Dairy-Free and Vegetarian Variations of these yummy treats.
