Cheesy Cajun Quesidillas

It is Quesadilla day. I feel like Quesadillas don’t get nearly as much as Tacos but they are just as good. This is what I make at home all the time fore the family. I love the simplicity of it with a southern flare, but it is the perfect balance of diary and protein as well. You can always add sautéed vegetables as well. That is how restaurants do it, I am just too tired (maybe a bit lazy) to take that extra steps. This is a recipe we use when we have not leftovers and are just tired and busy from a days work and school.

The great news is that this is much loved by my little one. I personally love spicy, and he doesn’t but we balance it out so we are both happy. He still raves over the chipotle quesadillas, but we get those when we are out and near a chipotle, which is a rare occasion now that we have moved.
