Making Dinner Special
Weekday dinner nights aren’t always the most special occasions. It seems like we are going a million different directions. I think that’s all the more reason to try to make weeknight dinners special. Dinner is our time to catch up as a family, talk about our day and to spend time together. That’s one way that we make it special. The other way is to have a theme for the night, and this Cowboys Quesadillas recipe from VELVEETA® and RO*TEL® will give your cowboys and cowgirls something to yee-haw about. The other night, we tried this delicious recipe, and it was a big hit. They have a bit of a kick and put a fun spin on quesadillas. We tried to make it a bit more healthy by using whole wheat tortillas, and 2% Velveeta and I think it’s definitely a recipe we will be making again.
