Avocado Quesadillas

Appetizer, Lunch

I just love Mexican food because of the bold flavor.  So this past weekend I made these wonderful Avocado Quesadillas.  Some of my key ingredients included zucchini, red onion, jalapeno peppers, black beans and red bell peppers.  I added a tangy sauce made from chipotle chili seasoning.  This dish was absolutely delicious.

Mom’s Organic is another great place to buy fresh veggies and baking ingredient’s.  Their assortment of fresh produce is outstanding.  Check out my Shop Page for a nice selection of kitchen essentials like slicers, cutting boards, food prep bowls and more.
