I hate lunch. I never know what to eat and I always end up eating a bunch of random snacks instead of an actual lunch. It's boring and uninspiring and that is why I hate lunch.
This morning I was putting together my lunch for camp training and feeling annoyed at how un-creative I was being. Then, I had a great idea! We had a bunch of random leftovers in the fridge: fish from fish tacos, grilled veggies, beans, and cheese. I was going to make a quesadilla!!!
It was crazy good and it made me like lunch a lot more than usual. I was actually excited to eat lunch when we had our break at training. This is a great way to use up leftovers, but in a new and creative way. Plus, it was healthy and I felt good about what I was eating.
Clean out the Kitchen Quesadilla
2 small corn tortillas
2 tbsp seared fish, shredded (or other form of protein)
1 tbsp black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp cheese (I used pepper-jack and cheddar)
1/4 cup cooked veggies (I had squash, zucchini, carrots, and red peppers)
Lightly grease a small fry pan and place 1 tortilla in the pan over medium-low heat. Top with the fish, beans, and veggies, and then sprinkle cheese all over the top. Place the other tortilla on top and, using a spatula, press down to glue everything together with the cheese. After 2-3 minutes, flip and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes or until everything is hot and the quesadilla is staying together.
