Dinner in 15 - A Grilling Twist

Happy 4th of July! Hope you've had a wonderful day!

As this is a big grilling weekend, I thought I'd share a recipe that is fun to do on a grill: quesadillas. Everyone can choose ingredients they like, and if they chose both red and green ingredients, each quesadilla can contain a full pallet of nutrition.

Collect your ingredients together: tortillas, cheese, peppers, cooked meat of your choice, tomatoes, onions, baby spinach, avocados, salsa, mushrooms, zucchini, or squash - whatever sounds good to you.

On plates or cookie sheets with no sides, let everyone assemble quesadillas using cheese as the first and last ingredient to act as glue to hold the quesadillas together. Slide the quesadillas onto your olive-oil-brushed grill, heated to medium high.

Grill 2 minutes on each side, turning carefully. Allow quesadillas to rest for a couple of minutes before cutting with a pizza cutter. Serve with fruit.
