It’s official! As of last week, it’s Summer time! If you’re like me, Summer is typically your busiest time of the year. Work (in the yard, and in the office), BBQ’s, vacations, camping, entertaining, and Independence Day all come together to create the hot mess that is Summer – and I wouldn’t have it any other way! In fact, Summer has earned the ‘favorite season’ spot in my heart.
I also LOVE sharing delicious, filling food with friends and family. For me, it simply doesn’t get any better than sharing good food and laughs with loved ones while enjoying a Summer evening outdoors out on the deck, or in the yard with my feet in the grass. But remember how I said that Summer is a BUSY time for me? Yeah.. so I’m really not able to spend hours (or even half hours) in the kitchen whipping up a good meal. Now, more than ever, is when I rely on simple, straight forward recipes that can be made in a flash. I’m here today with such a recipe!
These bean and cheese quesadillas are hands down one of the quickest, most delicious recipes that I’ve made this year! You can have them out on the table and ready to eat in less than ten minutes flat, with few dishes left beyond for cleanup. I have to give a shout out to La Terra Fina for their incredible La Terra Fina Sriracha Three Cheese Dip & Spread for making this recipe possible. The rich & creamy Three Cheese Dip is the heart of this recipe and unites the refried beans and the tortilla in a most glorious way!
These quesadillas are the definition of ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ goodness, and will practically dissolve into a heavenly cloud of tasty, cheesy bliss the moment they reach your mouth. I’m not exaggerating!
And because La Terra Fina Sriracha Three Cheese Dip & Spread does so much of the prep work for you, this is a recipe that you can make at a moments notice. Plus, if you’re like me, the quality of your ingredients is as important, if not even more important than the convenience factor. You can rest easy, because La Terra Fina doesn’t use artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This dip is as wholesome as it is tasty.
Let’s get to the recipe, shall we? Summer beckons! Just don’t be surprised if your loved ones keep asking you to make this recipe for many seasons to come. ;)
