Quesadillas are a favorite kids’ menu option, but they often consist of two ingredients: a flour tortilla and cheese (followed by a slathering of butter or oil). Introduce veggies into this kid-favorite to up its nutritional profile. Here we add corn, mushrooms, and green onions, but any combo of your child's favorite veggies will work. This recipe also calls for fresh Anaheim chiles, but ¼ cup canned mild green chiles make a good substitute. A side of mild salsa in a little container makes it seem like you’re at the restaurant.
