Avocado & Cheese Quesadilla

avocado-cheese-quesadillas.jpg

I hadn't even thought about adding this on as a recipe until I realized that we made FOUR of these quesadillas just this week alone. This means 3 things to me_ 1) I'm pretty sure that kids will love them because Kenya hasn’t stopped asking for them, 2) for me to be so happy making them must mean they only take minutes to throw together and 3) they're perfect for anyone on a budget because they’re made with some of the staples I always seem to have laying around the house. This recipe costs me just over $1.50 for 2 servings and there are never leftovers. I call that a recipe worth making again and again!

    Thanks so much for this website. It has really inspired me to try to get healthy food on the table for my 2 year old twins. Just wondering, what brand tortillas do you buy? The ones in my local grocery store all have a million ingredients that I don't understand (and some that I do understand, including high fructose corn syrup). I'm hoping for a store bought brand that is ok.
