Easy Summer Quesadilla

I know when it’s hot outside, the last thing you want to do sometimes is eat hot food. Summer can make you feel like ice cream, sandwiches, pasta salad, and anything else that comes from the fridge. But, there are ways to lighten up some of your favorite dishes as well!

Today I’m sharing a recipe for what I’m calling my Easy Summer Quesadilla. This is a healthy quesadilla recipe that you are sure to love! Now, I love making quesadillas because they are easy, quick, and of course delicious. And I’ve lightened up the traditional quesadilla with red onions and mango salsa for an easy summer lunch that is oh so delicious! I even use my Mango Guacamole which is lighter than traditional guacamole and just perfect for summer.

I actually found this amazing organic mango salsa at Costco – from La Mexicana and it’s so good! It’s what I used to make my Mango Guacamole and it’s delicious on tacos and quesadillas as well. Definitely pick some up for a summer salsa that’s sweet and fruity! Get the recipe below for my Easy Summer Quesadilla.
