Hi friends! I have another random and quick post and recipe for you today! This time last year, I posted a "Living off the Land" meal and it was my intention to keep those posts going throughout the year but, I must have forgot about that -- whoops! Anyway, the other day I shared that yummy buffalo chicken rice bowl. I had a ton of leftover chicken and practically a full can of black beans so last night when I came home from a long day at work... I whipped up these freaking delish buffalo chicken quesadillas. I had all ingredients in my house so I was able to make a healthier meal without spending any extra money. Here's how it all went down!
- Cooked and shredded chicken breast tossed in buffalo sauce (I like Cindy's brand)
- Black Beans
- Whole Wheat Tortillas
- Shredded cheese (I used organic mozzarella)
Step 1: I tossed a bit more buffalo sauce in the leftover chicken and heated up the pan. Toss the tortilla on a hot pan and start piling on the ingredients. My ingredients were cold but, they warmed right up.
Again, this recipe is versatile. Don't have beans? Tomatoes, peppers, and onions would be a great addition to this quesadilla. Remember, I was working with what I had in my kitchen so it ended up being a VERY protein-packed meal.
Step 2: Add all ingredients to one side, fold the tortilla in half and toast each side until the cheese gets melty and the edges are golden brown.
Step 3: Slice and serve! I topped it with sliced avocado because, well, avocado YUM! This meal is extremely protein packed and fills that "comfort food" void without all the extra junk.
I have one more thing to share with you today...
The smoothie recipe I posted the other day has been very popular and I've been getting a lot of questions about ingredients, etc. I made it again this morning and added a tablespoon of cacao powder to it for extra iron, magnesium, and fiber! Cacao powder is cocoa in it's raw form and offers a TON of nutritional value. Plus, it's so delicious... I'm addicted to this smoothie! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Have an extremely awesome weekend! I hope you laugh a lot, spend time outdoors, eat good food, relax, and get in a little movement! xo
