If you’re like me and are always rushing to cook, then you’re going to love these Buffalo White Bean Quesadillas. They’re super easy to make and done in minutes giving you more time to spend with friends and family.
Since my hours were increased at work from 30 to 40, I have had significant less time to cook, clean, and blog than I used to. I really took for granted having 3 days off from work. One of those days I used to meal prep and to get most of my blogging for the week done. Now without that extra day off, I have been trying to fine tune my schedule to get as many things done after work and as efficiently as possible.
I’m a super grouchy person when I don’t get enough sleep, so by becoming more organized, I am able to get more things done after work and I don’t find myself staying up until midnight every night trying to get things finished. Also, I’d rather get everything done that I need to on the week nights so I can enjoy by days off instead of finding myself inundated with chores.
One of the ways that I have been freeing up some time is by making quick and easy meals that involve little to no prep like these tasty buffalo white bean quesadillas. I wanted to give a quick shout and thank you to Moore’s Marinades. They so kindly gave me a bunch of different marinades and sauces to try that inspired this recipe.
These buffalo white bean quesadillas don’t contain any meat so there is no additional cooking other than heating everything up in the skillet. I bet you could also assemble these on a cookie sheet and bake multiple quesadillas at a time to save even more time! I haven’t tried this method yet, but I’m going to.
Even though these quesadillas don’t contain any meat, they are still packed full of protein from the beans and cheese, plus you get an additional dose of fiber that you wouldn’t get from the meat. And they’re super cheap to make too, which automatically makes them taste better right?
Starting Wednesday April 6th, I’m going to eat vegetarian and really try to eat vegan for 30 days. This kind of stemmed from David and I planting the huge garden in our backyard and him buying the book mini-farming for me for Christmas. I really wanted to test myself to see if I could live off my own land, or at least get the majority of the produce from my land. Unfortunately we planted a little late and won’t see any crops until May/June and hopefully it won’t be too hot down here in Florida by then to get a good harvest.
During these 30 days I am going to try to post daily with updates on how I am doing/feeling through this journey so that if others want to try to go vegetarian or vegan, they can learn through my trial and errors. Plus I will still be posting recipes and workouts, but I will probably change my newsletter to go out only weekly or bi weekly instead of every post because I don’t want to overwhelm your inbox LOL.

I wanted to show you all how easy these buffalo white bean quesadillas are to make so I went ahead and made a quick video below. I finally think I am getting the hang of shooting videos. I actually shot this one all by myself through trial and error.
