Do you have a case of the Mondays? And if you are’t sure what that means, watch Office Space. Such a good flick! Mondays are always hard for me. Even though I work from home, it’s still difficult to get back to the grind.
Mondays usually consist of catching up on emails, grocery shopping, laundry, and planning the rest of the week. By the time dinner rolls around, I am usually too tired to make dinner. If we are lucky, we eat leftovers from Sunday dinner, but sometimes I open the fridge to nothing. Sure, our fridge is stocked with the groceries we just bought, but I am usually not in the mood to do anything with them.
Sometimes we just eat cereal, but I try to throw something together. It has to be easy though. Mondays are easy nights. My new favorite easy meal are these Open-Faced Enchilada Veggie Quesadillas.
Enchiladas and quesadillas are always welcome at our dinner table. I love them both and would have a hard time picking a favorite. Good thing you don’t have to choose because you can have the best of both worlds.
These crisp quesadillas are covered with enchilada sauce, topped with veggies, and smothered in cheese. Garnish with fresh cilantro, sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and you have a delicious and healthy meal in minutes.
I am not going to lie, I am kind of excited for Monday now…as long as Open-Faced Enchilada Veggie Quesadillas are on the dinner menu.
Make Monday a little better with Open-Faced Enchilada Veggie Quesadillas. They are perfect for Meatless Monday too! For the recipe and step-by-step photos, head on over to Tasty Kitchen. Thanks Amber for sharing your quick and easy recipe!
These look yummy! Totally having a case of the Mondays…
Super fabulous! We make something similar. The whole family loves them!
Love how simple this is!
These are so much fun – perfect for the monday’s for sure. And on another note – I need to watch Office Space again.
These look really delicious and healthy! Thanks for sharing.
I love quesadillas and this is such a great and tasty twist to the original!
This would be great on any day of the week. We’re always looking for quick, healthy options for busy weeknights, and these quesadillas would definitely fit the bill!
Looks delicious! I love getting ideas for quick and easy meals.
Love new vegetarian ideas — great!
Ugh I have a case of the Mondays EVERY Monday but yesterday was the worst in a long time!!
First of all, and I have said this before on other comments, but I love your cooking blog! I always love everything I make from your site. We definitely have the same cooking/eating style. Healthy vegetarian with some sweets mixed in! But, I also wanted to say, thank you for saying that some nights you just eat cereal or heat up left overs! That just gave you more credibility and respect for me than 100s of beautiful perfect recipes! I love to cook homemade and healthy, but I am also a working mom, (and a normal human being) and sometimes I just don’t feel like cooking a stinking thing and I have finally started learning to say it’s ok if we have cereal once a week for dinner, or chinese takeout! Sometimes, looking at picture perfect blogs makes me feel less adequate as a mother/woman because it can make other people’s lives seem more perfect and interesting than my own. So, right now instead of wondering how it is another working mother found time to make homemade tortillas for her enchiladas and I didn’t, I am saying THANK YOU!
Thanks Ashley for your comment. We are real people:) We don’t have gourmet meals every night. I actually enjoy cereal nights:)
Looks a lot less messy than overloaded quesadillas or enchiladas. Thanks for sharing!
Those open-faced quesadillas look really tasty!
perfection! I really would love to have a few of these at my kitchen table right now!
Love this easy Monday night meal.
Yum! This looks so fresh and colorful. I love all the veggies you included on the quesadillas!
Love this idea!
Could you please include the recipe?
Just made these last night! Not a fast/quick recipe but they were so good! Next time I’m doubling it so we can have leftovers!
YUM!! Cant wait to try this.
Making these for dinner tonight! My mouth has been watering since I saw these!!
What a delicious idea! Cant wait to give them a whirl!
Instant hit! So easy and yummy. My only drawback was that the toppings kept sliding off the tortilla. I guess you could put the cheese underneath would that help?
Sa0livsting with the mere view of these crispy base cheesy topping enchladas. Indeed a great post
Hi. I don’t see a recipe anywhere?
