Today’s fifth Sunday Secret Recipe Club reveal theme is Back to School. Now I don’t have children but when I think back to school especially those first hectic days fast and simple suppers are needed.

Burnt Apple is the blog I got for this month. There were a wealth of amazing sounding recipes but I knew I was looking for an easy dinner idea. Homemade frozen pizzas made the short list. I know you’re probably thinking “homemade pizza on a weeknight?” Since it’s frozen it would be perfect for whipping up on the weekend and stashing in the freezer for a midweek pizza craving

Stuffed sausage and cheese French Bread was another recipe I considered. I finally decided on this recipe for Barbeque Chicken Quesadillas for a few reasons. I love quesadillas and barbecue chicken pretty much anything. Also,  barbecue chicken quesadillas have been on my to make list for awhile.

The only changes I made to the recipe were using smaller tortillas and no cilantro. The cilantro omission was only because I forgot to buy it. So don’t be like me.

Serve the quesadillas with a nice big green salad and some chips and pico de gallo for fast and fabulous back to school dinner.
