I gave it a try and it turned out better than I expected! I was immediately in love with the texture, flavor and ease of the dish. My family loves it too- in fact we can’t seem to get enough of it.

The egg quesadilla is a simple yet flavorful dish that not only tastes great but is also healthy. Eggs are a great source of protein and all the other ingredients used, such as cheese, tomatoes and jalapeno peppers, are also full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Tomatoes are also a good source of lycopene, which has been linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer. Additionally, this egg quesadilla is a great meal for anyone following a low-carb diet as it is high in protein and low in carbs.

All these benefits combined make it an easy, delicious and nutritious meal that the entire family is sure to love.
