So depending on how long it takes you to to chop and saute the veggies this meal could easily take less than 20 minutes to make, and who doesn’t love a super fast meal? I had a bunch of tomatoes and decided to make fresh salsa for the first time. We decided to whip up some quesadillas and call it a meal. We had leftover quesadilla filling so we had them two nights in a row, yum.
