“Cowboy” Quesadillas Recipe: A Quick Vegetable Quesadilla Recipe With an Interesting Ingredient

When my kids were younger I made this quesadillas recipe often. For some reason we called them “cowboy quesadillas" and the name stuck. They were a well-loved recipe in our house for several reasons:

  1. They’re a sneaky way to get the kids to eat their veggies.
  2. Even my pickier child happily ate them.
  3. They work for lunch, dinner or snack time.
  4. They’re quick and easy!
  5. Make-Your-Own-Quesadilla-Night can become a favorite family tradition. Add in a movie and it’s a full night of fun!

My kids are older now and I don’t need to sneak their vegetables in, but they still love their quesadillas! This quesadilla recipe has an interesting ingredient: garden vegetable pasta sauce. I hope your family enjoys this easy recipe as much as mine does.
