Rainbow Quesadillas

They say you should eat foods of every color of the rainbow.  Well, it’s a rainy day today, so to brighten it up and get some healthy nutrients, I made Rainbow Quesadillas.

Roy G Biv (minus the blue):

Red peppers, orange peppers, yellow peppers, corn, broccoli, and red onions.  I started by carmelizing the onions:

Low heat for about 45 minutes (sprinkle just a pinch a sugar on towards the end to really caramelize those babies).

Add peppers, cook for a while longer.

Finally add broccoli and corn. (I used frozen, because that’s what I had on hand.)

Using your favorite whole grain tortillas:

Spread a little Trader Joes Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant spread on one tortilla(or anything else that sounds appealing, like salsa, mango chutney, whatever).


Next add veggies:

Next a little chicken (or any other protein, beans, fish, tofu, it’s up to you).

Finally, a little cheese:

Top with another tortilla and put on the George Foreman Grill (or in a skillet and flip half way through).
Cut, garnish with lettuce and tomato and enjoy.
