Husband-Tested Recipe from
We were hungry. We were tired. The fridge was full of leftovers. What was I to do? Make a quesadilla, of course! I call it Local Folks because I used my favorite Local Folks Mustard and Local Folks Hot Sauce. These are available at
Here’s how to make a quick Local Folks Quesadilla:
Place one whole wheat lavash (or tortilla) on a cutting board. Spread a thin layer of Local Folks Mustard over the lavash. Sprinkle a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese (or pepper cheese or cheddar cheese) over the mustard layer. Place bite sized pieces of leftover chicken over the cheese layer. Place a handful of arugula (or spinach) over the chicken layer. (You can also add about ½ cup of rinsed black beans, if you have them around.) Place another whole wheat lavash on top. Place the quesadilla into a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook a few minutes until the bottom becomes lightly browned and the cheese begins to melt. (You’ll just have to peek.) Using a large spatula, carefully flip the quesadilla over so that the other side can brown too. This just takes a few minutes. Slide the finished quesadilla onto the cutting board. With a large knife, pizza wheel or kitchen shears, cut the quesadilla into wedges. Sprinkle with Local Folk Hot Sauce.
Other additions from your pantry or refrigerator: avocado, sour cream or Greek yogurt, peppers, scallions, salsa, tomatoes….. You get the idea.
