Zucchini and Bell Pepper Quesadillas

Tortillas makes some of my favorite foods. Tortilla chips, tacos, burritos and quesadillas! 

I have certain phases of food when I make something over and over again. Tacos are.. well, always a phase for me. Currently, it’s been quesadillas and I’m not complaining! It’s so delicious and I can always switch it up by adding in different veggies or adding in some chicken or steak. I love foods like this where I can tailor it according to what ingredients I have at home or what I’m craving at the moment. 

I also love guacamole and salsa! I need to learn how to make my own recipe (hmm, future recipe testing??). I use to work at Chipotle so I’ve made their crack Guac before. It’s SO easy and tastes amazing every time. 

Anyways, here’s my super simple quesadilla recipe! Some of my favorite items to add into quesadillas are bell peppers, mushrooms and artichokes! I had extra zucchini I needed to use up so I decided to throw them in!
