Double Duty Quesadilla Casserole

The other night (Tuesday, to be exact) Jay and I had a pretty amazing dinner.


Yeah, the cauliflower was good, but that’s definitely not what we’re talkin’ about here. No no. Today, we’re talking about that delicious casserole you see right there.


Probably at least four months ago, I wound up picking up one of these McCormick Recipe Inspirations packages after my mom told me just how good they were. I usually do try my best to take the frugal route when grocery shopping (although Jay may tend to argue that one) but sometimes, convenience just takes precedence.


So after coming across the package once again over the weekend, I decided that I’d finally take a stab at it this week. I made sure to pick up all of my ingredients and quickly got things rollin’.


I noticed that the recipe called for everything to bake in a 9×13 casserole, but for a family of two, finishing off a casserole that large can become quite a challenge. Rather than getting stuck with leftovers all week, I decided to break things up into two smaller dishes – that way, we had one to enjoy this week, and the other is now stored in the freezer for a night when I really don’t feel like cooking.


This recipe is one that could easily be made without the seasoning packet, so if you’re interested in giving it a shot, here ya go!



Enjoy! I know I’ll be thoroughly enjoying my last piece as leftovers this evening. Winking smile

    Sounds super yummy and easy to make. I like that you divided it into two portions. Good idea for a smaller family of only two people. I think I might have to try this one. Thanks for always sharing your delicious recipes with us here on the blog. Have a great day. ^_^

    I made this last night and let me tell you, the hubby LOVED it. I made the mistake of doing it all in one pan though so there are lots of leftovers. We added a little dollop of daisy sour cream and went to town. Another winner (the chicken&tomato mac and cheese is a new favorite too) Thank you for this recipe!
