Chicken and Veggie Quesadillas | Delish D'Lites

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m completely obsessed with all things Tex-Mex.  Just check out this list of Tex-Mex inspired recipes!

Besides fajitas, my second favorite Tex-Mex dish are quesadillas.  They’re so versatile and very quick to throw together, making them a perfect weeknight friendly meal.  You can literally put anything into a quesadilla! Scour the fridge for some leftover bits of veggies and/or meal, plus a little cheese, and you’ve got something super delish!

These chicken and veggie quesadillas are a great way to get your family to eat veggies, without even knowing!  I’m using fresh corn taken right off the cob, along with bell peppers, scallions, and zucchini, but the possibilities for these quesadillas are truly endless.

We’re kicking up the flavor in this quesadilla with the help of this ahhhh-mazing spice blend from Outer Spice! Each batch of Outer Spice is made from a unique blend of hand-selected spices and are made in small, artisanal batches for a taste you can really SEE!

 The spices aren’t ground up into a cloud of unrecognizable spice dust, they’re big chunks of dried spices that smell and taste incredible! And if that’s not already fabulous, these Outer Spices blends are gluten-free, MSG-free and made with all-natural non-GMO ingredients that are ethically sourced.
