Avocado Cheddar and Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadilla

A few weeks ago I shared our current favorite salad so I decided to run with a theme of quick and simple meals that we actually eat on a regular basis.  So today it’s a quick and simple quesadilla with avocado, sharp white cheddar and sun-dried tomatoes.

You might remember that I’m married to the quesadilla king.  Paul could live on quesadillas alone.  We keep cheese and tortillas stocked at all times!  However, this one was all my creation.

Since we moved, I am currently working from home on various freelance projects and since I can’t expect to be able to eat cookies and cake all day long, I came up with this quesadilla for a quick and easy lunch on Monday.  And I wouldn’t be at all surprised it if ends up being my lunch again today.  I absolutely love this combo of ingredients!
