My life is over-scheduled, I live close to the Mexican border, and I look forward to my next meal before I have finished with my current repast. What this means is â€” I have a protein-filled quesadilla at 3:00 p.m. daily.
Some days I use chicken left over from the night before, other days I cook an egg to top my corn tortilla. But my afternoon snack is always tasty, convenient, and the perfect thing for an energy deprived foodie who wants (and deserves, if I may) a siesta, but has to keep going, just like everyone else.
So take a few minutes and make this if you’re near a stove, or pack it up and take it with you (if you plan on making ahead, a poached egg or the chicken option will keep this snack from becoming messy). Grains, lean protein, calcium and vegetables all make it into this compact snack.
Just what you need to make it to 5 o’clock. Grab the recipe for my afternoon quesadilla and enjoy!
