Meal Monday is a weekly post series on the subject of food. I’ll talk about my love for food to sharing recipes that I love cooking to food tips.

We all have days where we don’t have much time to prepare a meal. What do you normally do? Make a frozen pizza, leftovers, eat out, etc? There are times that I do eat out instead of cooking something. Especially if I have to go somewhere that evening, such as grocery shopping. But there are other times that I buckle down and say no to eating out.

I love to have options of meals to cook that are quick to prepare. One of my options that is very easy to make and doesn’t take much time is Mexican food. Some of my favorites are chicken enchiladas, chicken tacos/salads, and chicken quesadillas.

I add toppings inside of my chicken quesadillas. I love having the additional flavor to the quesadillas plus I’m also getting vegetables in my meal.

Check out my recipe for chicken quesadillas.
