As a busy mom, I’m always on the lookout for easy lunches to serve my hungry kiddos. Quesadillas are about as easy as you can get. Sort-of a sandwich taken up a notch. While I enjoy my quesadillas with beans, meat, and other tasty inserts, my kids like them plain.
Cheese Triangles :: Kid-Favorite Quesadillas | RaiasRecipes.comOriginally, cheese triangles were born out of a way to make the quesadillas easier for my kids to handle, since a whole one is a tad large for little hands. But as they grew, their love for cheese triangles didn’t diminish. 😉
Cheese triangles remain a family favorite lunch, preferably served with a side of salsa and sour cream, or my son’s favorite: my lacto-fermented hummus!
