  1. This is the second recipe I have tried from this blog. I made this one with my boyfriend who, for the record, doesn’t like quesadillas. The ENTIRE dinner all he could talk about was how this was exactly what he wanted and how amazing it was. He rated it 10/10! It was seriously such a tasty quesadilla with lots of flavor. We added the cooked veggies that were suggested, with the avocado too, and it was seriously so delicious. It was filling and very flavorful and so easy! My boyfriend stuffed himself silly because he just didn’t want to stop eating it. I can’t wait to have the leftovers for dinner tonight!! Yum! The only thing I would like to add (not to the quesadilla that was perfect) is maybe some additional pictures? I like seeing the steps laid out in pictures to make sure mine is coming out the same. It’s not a big deal. Just personal preference.
