Greek Quesadillas

Ok so technically this does not fall into Mexican…as far as I’m concerned 😉 This was sooo good! A great alternative for a meatless dinner with fresh veggies. I must admit, I forgot the black olives. I love olives too, my husband didn’t mind though since he hates them! I’m known to forget an ingredient every time I make something and since we live across the street from a supermarket you would think that it would be easy to just pop over and pick up what I forgot but as I was already there TWICE today I said screw it. This dish was still amazing without the olives but I will make it again complete with every ingredient 🙂

enjoy!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

2 roasted vine ripe tomatoes

2 cups chopped baby spinach

1/3 chopped red onion

1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

1/3 cup feta cheese

1 small can of sliced black olives

olive oil

dried oregano

roasted red pepper

10″ whole wheat tortillas

Directions

Lightly brush one side of tortilla

turn tortilla over and place chopped spinach, red onion, roasted red pepper and roasted tomato and top with shredded cheese, feta and sprinkle oregano. Fold in half and place in frying pan on medium heat. cook until side has browned and turn over until cheese is melted (only a couple minutes each side should be enough). Viola!

Raspberry Mojito Ice Popsicles

So this is my first ice pop experiment, I came across this recipe on an amazing food photographer’s blog; White on Rice Couple.  When I saw their post on the Marionberry Mojito Ice pops I immediately scoured for the popsicle mold online and was planning on making this asap. They.are.delicious.  A perfect summer bbq treat and to cool you off on those hot summer days. I’m going to make so many variations of these this summer so stay tuned!

Ranch Chicken Tacos…amazing!

If you haven’t guessed by the multiple posts of Mexican inspired plates here on the blog then you haven’t figured out that I’m crazy in love with Mexican food. I love it. I love it. I love it. I came upon this recipe and it caught my eye because of the Ranch dressing. I’m also a huge fan of Ranch dressing. We have a traditional meal in my family on the Portuguese side where we used to grill steak tips in my grandparents kitchen (they had an amazing built-in grill), load them up on soft rolls and smother with Ranch dressing. I’ll be posting on that once we get our new grill! We actually had them one night last year during the week after our wedding and it was such a nice touch to have family around and enjoy it. OK enough about that, I’m veering off course here!

Here is where you can find this great recipe, we had a ton of chicken left over that would be great to add to a salad. I didn’t have lettuce on hand so I just used tomato.
