Black and Blue Quesadillas

I love quesadillas. They are so easy, cheesy, and delicious. But unfortunately, quesadillas are also usually not as healthy as they might be. Fortunately, Cooking Light has a few phenomenal quesadilla recipes. One, for black and blue quesadillas, was surprisingly delicious for a recipe employing lunch meat (hrrm). Very quick, and very few ingredients required. Even though I did use pre-packed lunch meat instead of fancy deli counter meat, they were still tasty. As a very slight twist, I cooked the roast beef lunch meat with onions and balsamic vinegar before assembling the quesadillas in order to ensure that everything was heated prior to assembly, as well as to help boost the flavor. If you're in the market for balsamic glaze, I recommend a citrus balsamic glaze--Earth & Vine has a ridiculously delicious Blood Orange Balsamic that I am in love with. Pro-tip for the Blood Orange Balsamic: Best salad dressing ever!
Black and Blue Quesadillas
These quesadillas should be close to 233 calories per serving -- be careful with this count, though. Tortillas vary widely in calories contained (look at those labels!), so if you aren't careful, yours might end up at over 300/per.

Ease: 9
Tastiness: 8.5
Comfort: 8.5
