Recipe - Quick Vegetarian Quesadillas
...practically a weekly meal at our house
2 tortillas (whole-wheat is healthiest - I have recently switched to Smart & Delicious brand)
1 Boca Spicy Chik Patty (available in the frozen food aisle of most grocery stores and Super Target, where I usually buy it) or Morningstar Farm patty with hot sauce added
Grated dairy or soy cheese (I like Mexican mix, but cheddar or Colby works too)
Thinly sliced bell peppers (red, green, or yellow)
Sliced black olives
Sliced jalapenos (from jar)
Cook the Boca Spicy Chik Patty as directed in microwave (1 minute). Slice it into thin strips - I use a pizza cutter to do this. Note: my husband, who likes food extremely spicy, coats his chik patty with Frank's Hot Sauce before slicing. Place the chik slices on one tortilla. Add the other ingredients to taste. (Or add whatever ingredients you like, but these taste great.) Cover with the second tortilla. To cook this, we use our George Foreman grill, very quick and easy. You can also cook this on a griddle (careful flipping) or in a quesadilla maker. Slice the quesadilla and serve (use the pizza cutter again).
This is practically a complete meal. Can serve some fruit or a salad or refried beans with it. Or can serve 2 people per quesadilla and add more sides.
