with my various food allergies i’ve come to deem certain menu items as safe and or uncomplicated. for mexican food the easiest thing for me to alter is tacos but oh how i miss the ohey goey ness of enchiladas. so why not make them for meatless monday. i stuffed mine with refried black beans, fresh avocado slices and fresh spinach, made up a side of peach salsa mexican rice and who needs to go out for mexican food any more…not me!


meatless monday — a peachy quesadilla

melty yummy goodness

i feel like i go through phases of making quesadillas all the time and then i’ll realize it has been a year and i haven’t made a single one.  when examining my fridge for dinner options at first glance i thought i had nothing for a quick meatless monday dinner but then i say tortilla shells, black beans, an avocado, plain yogurt, and peach salsa……QUESADILLA!!!!  the tricky part is always flipping the quesadilla without all of your ingredients falling out.  i know the trick is to use lots of cheese to hold everything in place but i have yet to perfect this flipping action.  beans, cheese still come flying out, it is just hit and miss on how much comes out.
