I don't know about you but I'm definitely on a budget these days. These past couple of months have been pretty expensive so I'm trying to eat every meal I can at home and make those meals cheap. Budget Bytes is one of my favorite places to find inexpensive recipe ideas. That's where I found one of my all time favorite simple spicy noodle recipes as well as this quesadilla idea. I usually stick to boring old cheese quesadillas but why do that when you can add delicious inexpensive ingredients? A can of black beans and some frozen corn will run you about $2 total and it makes the quesadilla way more filling. I definitely recommend it!
- shredded cheese (I used monterey jack and cheddar)
- black beans
- frozen corn (or canned... or fresh of course)
- taco seasoning
I don't have exact measurements for this because it's one of those 'do whatever you want' kind of recipes. Basically I just mixed everything together in a bowl and put it in between two tortillas. I'm not going to tell you how to fry up a quesadilla because you probably already know how.
Beth of Budget Bytes also had the brilliant idea of making a few quesadillas and freezing them. That way you can grab one in the morning and heat it up for lunch at work. Genius!
