Food: Dinner Tonight – Quesadilla

You know, sometimes you have to follow your cravings. Like last night, where I knew exactly what I wanted to make for dinner while commuting home from work, and by the time I got home, I craved roast chicken from the grocers with a side of home-made mashed potatoes and  sauté-d string beans with garlic and olive oil – again my  recipe.

Today, I am actually serving breakfast for dinner – or ingredients decided to be used mostly for breakfast and in the form of this Quesadilla recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 large eggs
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter at room temperature
  • 1 can (4 ounce) diced green chiles
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo, finely chopped  
  • 4 whole wheat or regular flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 4 slices cooked crispy bacon, lightly crumbled    {I’ll be using Turkey bacon for our family}
  • 1-2 cups baby spinach or arugula
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped chives
  • extra virgin olive oil, for cooking

AVOCADO SALSA

  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped chives or green onions
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • kosher salt   {more}

Followed by this dessert – Oh, stop. It’s okay to live a little
