I LOVE quesadillas. So, naturally I am always trying to think of ways to take them to the next level and add a bit of protein to up the satisfaction factor. Enter this 7 Layer quesadilla. It’s not fancy, in fact its basically just the traditional 7 layer dip you eat at parties shoved into a tortilla and baked but I promise you they will be the most delicious thing you eat this week.

I chose to bake these instead of frying them like a traditional quesadilla for few reasons. First, they are so loaded, they would be a bit difficult to flip.  Secondly, baking them allows you to  prepare multiple at a time so if you are making them for a group everybody’s meal will be ready at the same time. But by all means feel free to make them in a pan if you are short on time!
