quesadilla on a baking sheet

So this recipe came about by accident. First, there is a sandwich similar to this that both my husband and I love from a local deli. I pack my husband’s lunch every day and I had started making him a sandwich that was a take on our favorite from the deli. Some minor changes, but still delicious.

One day, in all of my rushed chaos of the morning, I realized that I had forgotten to buy bread for his sandwiches. Well, let’s be honest here that there are ALWAYS tortillas in my house. I figured it would at least do for that day and I could go get some bread that afternoon. I warned my husband and sent him on his way for the day.

Fast forward to lunch time that day and I get a snapchat from him with a picture of the quesadilla and a caption that said “MMMMMM!!!!” He told me it was delicious and he wanted me to start making these everyday for a while. That’s saying a lot! He’s the pickiest eater I’ve ever met and cooking for him on a daily basis is definitely a challenge. To find something he really likes is rare so I was really excited. He raved about it when he got home and said, “You really have to make it for yourself and try!” So I did. And it was as delicious as he said. I added the honey mustard to mine, but his goes without so you can choose what you like best for yourself! Add some Smoked Baked Beans to your plate for a complete lunch.

Have extra Smoked Chicken Thighs? This would be delicious meat to add to your quesadilla too. I also suggest dipping your quesadillas into my Smoked White Queso Dip.
