Cooktop Cove: How to make Mexican quesadilla casserole (video)
As a child, I was a very picky eater. I wouldn't eat anything with sauce on it, and I certainly wasn't going to eat any vegetables. If I didn't like dinner, I asked for a quesadilla or a grilled cheese sandwich. Mom quickly caught on and started making cheesy dishes she knew I couldn't resist. She called this dish Mexican pizza (because I loved pizza more than anything) so that I would be more likely to eat it!
This baked version of a Mexican quesadilla is a quick and easy weeknight dinner. It's a great way to please the picky eaters in your family without sacrificing nutrition, as this tasty dish is filled with black beans, corn and tomatoes. The cheesy topping helps you sneak in a couple vegetables without the picky ones knowing!
Pro tip: To make this dish gluten-free, substitute corn tortillas for the flour tortillas. It will give the dish a more enchilada-like flavor, but it will still be delicious!
