Avocado and Olive Quesadillas

Avocado and Olive QuesadillasA quick note to my blog followers… I switched my blog to show a partial feed because several scrapers are continuing to steal my photos, posts, and recipes. I was told that switching to a partial feed would make it harder for them to steal so I thought I would give it a try. Sorry for any inconvenience. Thanks for your support.

I found this wonderful recipe in my newest library cookbook find “Gourmet Every Day” and I adapted it to work with what I had on hand. This is a great appetizer, lunch, or light dinner. I can’t tell you how delicious, creamy and crispy these little quesadillas are. My kids absolutely love them and so do my husband and I. I served them at an appetizer dinner party and they were a HUGE hit with everyone. They are quick and easy to make with little clean-up – you can’t beat that.
