Loaded Southwest Quesadillas Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Food Lion. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you ever feel like grocery shopping is right up there with the other never ending chores like the looming laundry pile and the always full sink? Food Lion makes it easier for me to get in, and get out, of the grocery store with everything I need so I don’t need any return shopping trips during the week.

While I was on the Food Lion app, I found their amazing selection of recipes. You can also find their recipes on the Fresh Ideas Blog. I love browsing the recipes right on the app because you can find a recipe you’d love to try, and easily add just the items to your grocery list that you will need.

See the little green plus symbols below – I just tapped the ingredients I still needed: red pinto beans, a red bell pepper, and corn. They were all added to my grocery list just like that.

Their Southwest Quesadillas looked amazing! We love eating quesadillas as it’s such an easy meal that the whole family likes, but I wanted something with more flavor than just a pile of cheese. This fit the bill – these quesadillas were amazing!!

This southwest recipe is FULLY loaded! It is amazing, you'll never eat your quesadilla any other way. Topped with all your favorites, a filling lunch or dinner.

We made a couple of modifications to the recipe, my boys all out voted the pinto beans so we swapped in black beans and used frozen corn for its ease and how well frozen corn cooks up. We all loved the result, these are going to be made again and again in our home!

5. Lay one full tortilla flat on the skillet. Sprinkle a little cheese, then scoop filling on top. Sprinkle again with cheese to help all your layers stick together and top with another tortilla. Cook until the cheese is melted, flipping halfway through cooking to brown both sides of the tortilla.
