Grilled Greek Vegetarian Quesadillas

Ah, summer is finally getting here (for those of us in Minnesota, that is!). When the weather is perfect, there's nothing better than spending as much of your day outside as possible. Extend your stay outside by grilling! Try these grilled quesadillas featuring Tastefully Simple's Greek Herb Beer Marinade Mix. Not only are they delicious, they're also pretty good for you and my kids thought they were fun to eat. Kids can even help assemble them!

Hint: If you'd like to have dessert on the grill to top off your perfect day outdoors, try Grilled Pineapple Right Side Up Cake or even a Grilled Banana Split

Tips and Hints

  • You can do all of your cooking outside, even the veggies. Use a grill pan and cook on the grill instead of on the stove.
  • Mix it up with different veggies and cheese, especially when kids are involved. They like to express their "inner-foodie," and it's easy when you're making quesadillas!
  • Try different tortillas or wraps. I personally like sun-dried tomato flavor, but there are so many flavors to choose from. It's fun to mix and match.
  • If you're not a vegetarian, add some chicken, beef or pork. Simply slice the meat thinly and saute or grill the meat with your veggies!
