Easy Tuna Quesadilla Recipe
I guess, by now it’s no secret I love quesadillas, wraps, sandwiches – any food squished into or onto a piece of bread. Any variety of bread.
This is a quick recipe I made this week in quite the hurry (10 minutes to be exact) and it’s super delicious! It’s somewhere between healthy and unhealthy because – spinach and then there’s the cream cheese. You decide if it’s healthy enough for you.
I loved this recipe and quite honestly, I’ve been making it many times in the past few months without the sriracha – but it added a nice spicy touch.
I hope you enjoy this quite simple, but tasty tuna melt quesadilla!
