One of my goals for 2016 was to increase my stash of meatless recipes. I try to have at least one meatless dinner a week but we have a tendency to eat the same two or three things all. the. time.

Mexican food is one of my favorite cuisines to eat and is especially easy to make delicious dishes without meat. Tostadas, veggie quesadillas, and green chile enchiladas are family favorites.


Cajun vegetable quesadillas are based on the veggie quesadillas from a couple of years ago. I added some yellow squash and zucchini as well as seasoned the whole shebang with Cajun seasoning for a bit of spice.
