Goat Cheese and Roasted Corn Quesadillas

Inspiration:
Cooking Light

I love quesadillas. I make them a lot, especially when I don't feel like cooking or have leftover ingredients sitting in my fridge.

I found this recipe and had all of the ingredients on hand. It was a nice, quick lunch that I could enjoy while my non-goat-cheese-loving husband was working on a weekend afternoon.

I substituted canola oil for the cooking spray and used frozen corn kernels since we don't have fresh available this time of year. I would not suggest using flour tortillas (too gummy); corn tortillas are best for any non-burrito recipe!

Yum. I love quesadillas too. My favorite are Mediterranean ones that have chicken, olives, and feta cheese.

I really love quesadillas, too, and what a great combo! I much prefer corn tortillas. Mmm.

I have a non-goat cheese loving husband too!

Did you substitute frozen corn? I'm sure it'll probably be ok but I thought I would ask.

Nicole--

I did substitute frozen corn since we don't have fresh corn available. I will update my notes!

I really love quesadillas, too, and love to experiment with them. They are the ideal vehicle for that, since if one is a flop you can easily just make another!

Sometimes we do "quesadilla night" which is similar to pizza night (without my having to make dough, LOL) and I let the kids and hubby put their own fillings in. It's a super easy dinner. (And good way to use up leftovers, especially when we've had tacos or fajitas and have leftovers)

Thanks to you I have an extensive list of meals to cook once my insane "no dairy" lenten curse is lifted!
