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.

  1. Definitely have the case of Mondays! And I must make this for dinner tonight – quick and easy is much needed on this day!

  2. I can see myself going just crazy with these – love the colors and the flavor combinations!

  3. Monday’s are always such a bummer. Definitely hard to get back in the mood to work! I love these easy open faced enchilada quesadillas!! I’m on a huge veggie kick lately so these would be perfect for dinner!

  4. I think I will make these with some corn tortillas as well as the flour tortillas. I like corn better and they are a bit healthier for a diabetic. They look delicious. There is no end to the veggies one could put on them like sautรฉed mushrooms, sliced jalapenos, for some kick, and spinach for some greens and fiber. And if you wanted to make these breakfast pizzas, you could add some scrambled eggs, and or another protein. Looks great and I will try it for sure.

  5. Love all of those beautiful colors! I just made a somewhat similar recipe with enchiladas this week. Cheers to so many great flavors on a Monday!

  6. Now that’s the kind of dinner I can totally be happy about after a busy catch-up day like a Monday! I know my boys would love it, too!

  7. i think i just found dinner tonight… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Mondays are so mundane, which is why I posted so many sprinkles this morning. Makes things a little more cheery!

  8. Office Space is one of the best movies of all time. Um…yeah…I’m gonna need you to come in on Saturdaaaaayyyy…

    Anyways. These.

    They need to be my dinner.

  9. There’s so much stuff on these, I’m not sure they still qualify as a quesadilla, but I’ll take it! What a great Monday night dinner idea!

  10. I definitely have a case of the Mondays. But having these waiting for me at home after work would definitely brighten things up ๐Ÿ™‚ Love this!

  11. These look like a fiesta — I love all the bright colors. They look incredibly good, so I’m definitely going to try them!

  12. These look incredible! I hear ya on even though ya just went food shopping, you don’t want to utilize any of the new groceries!! I would totally eat 3 of those right now.

  13. What a fun idea! Seems a lot like a tostada, which is one of my favorite quick n’ easy meals ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I love that! Enchiladas are one of my favorite Mexican dishes ever! And open face makes me feel like Im eating pizza too. So win win! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. These look fabulous! Love all the colourful veggies and the addition of enchilada sauce!

  16. I LOVE Office Space and could write a whole post on quotes from it! That and Swingers are my two favs. I’m digging these quesadillas really bad right now!
    I’m off to smash up my printer ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. These are so much fun – perfect for the monday’s for sure. And on another note – I need to watch Office Space again.

  18. 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!

  19. 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!

    1. Thanks Ashley for your comment. We are real people:) We don’t have gourmet meals every night. I actually enjoy cereal nights:)

  20. perfection! I really would love to have a few of these at my kitchen table right now!

  21. 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!

  22. 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?

  23. Sa0livsting with the mere view of these crispy base cheesy topping enchladas. Indeed a great post
