Baby corn and bell pepper quesadilla is my way to indulge on the yummies when life gets erratic. It’s such a simple, delicious and a healthy choice when you are really busy. The tortillas are filled with the goodness of veggies and loaded with cheese. Voila!! what more do you need for a hearty meal on a busy day!! I just love them as they can be made the way you want it. Use the veggies you like and omit the ones you don’t. But please do not avoid cheese…maybe you can control the portion there. It’s a quick meal that can be made in less 30 minutes.
Some days are so hectic that you just can’t manage to cook an elaborate meal for your family even if you intend to do so. With overloaded work and never-ending chores, life gets too busy. On top of that kid’s exams !! sounds dreadful!! Yes, it is and I am going crazy juggling between all of these. Well during such days what I really want is one dish that is healthy, yummy and filling. Quesadillas surely come to my rescue and it’s so easy to make. Honestly, during such hectic days, I do not make homemade tortillas. I just buy them from the grocery store so half of my job is already done. When it comes to filling and sauce you can practically add the veggies that may be sitting in your fridge. It’s time-saving and such a wholesome meal in itself. For sauce again you can use ready made tomato puree or even salsa or pizza sauce. It’s up to you. If you have time you can prepare them at home too.
