Potato Quesadilla

 “Quesadilla” was actually the first Mexican dish that I had tasted and it was “I know I love you before I met you” kind of a moment for me…..and the love-fest continued for every weekend for one month..Yes, I know you must be thinking “WHAT” šŸ™‚

But, I’ve to confess, Mexican food is my goto guilty pleasure food…I mean who wouldn’t love beans/meat/some greens n oh soooooo much cheese …It’s just Perfect !!!

And with the big game day coming, I know a lot of us are running around thinking about making quick but yummmmmy food for SuperBowl Party …. And this recipe is especially for my vegetarian friends. It not only looks pretty, it’s soooo easy to make and trust me potato and cheese filling with chilies is simply scrumptious.

It can be served as individual quesadilla or sliced and served as finger food. It’s a Big Hit with Kid’s too.
Here you Go – Make, Enjoy n Share !

TIP ::
On Gameday, You can make them in the morning and keep it in warmer/over for ready to eat /serve.
