Why You'll Love This Recipe

Today I'm sharing a recipe for what I'm calling my Easy Summer Quesadilla. This is a healthy quesadilla recipe that you are sure to love! I love making quesadillas because they are easy, quick, and of course delicious. And I've lightened up the traditional quesadilla with red onions and mango salsa for an easy summer lunch that is so good! I even use my Mango Guacamole which is lighter than traditional guacamole and just perfect for summer.

I actually found this amazing organic mango salsa at Costco – from La Mexicana and it's so good! It's what I used to make my Mango Guacamole and it's delicious on tacos and quesadillas as well. Definitely pick some up for a summer salsa that's sweet and fruity!

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
