Dessert Quesadillas Because Stress

When I have a stressful week, I eat my feelings.

Which works well for you because that means I will end up making a recipe and sharing it.

One morning I was packing Ella’s lunch and made her sandwich on a flour tortilla instead of her usual bread to shake things up a bit.

I am one wild and crazy mom.

It was while I was spreading condiments (hate that word) on her tortilla that I had an idea: what if I spread peanut butter and jelly on a tortilla and fry it like a quesadilla?

THAT WOULD TAKE THIS CRAP WEEK TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

Enter dessert quesadillas.

I am sure this has probably been done and is pinned on Pinterest somewhere, but for the sake of this blog, let’s pretend I invented this!

Spread ’em

Because you know how my brain works, all I could think about while constructing, cooking and eating was that I wish my name rhymed with jelly. So I could create the coolest blog name in honor of my favorite foods (PB&J being at the top of that list).

Peanut Butter and Kelly needs to be a blog somewhere.

Or Peanut Butter and Smelly.

Or Peanut Butter and Deli.

If you were on the fence about a blog name YOU ARE WELCOME.

Fold ’em

After you prep your quesadilla, heat some butter in a frying pan. Then after your pan has heated for a few minutes, add the tortillas.

I don’t know the exact amount of time you need for each side because I don’t time it and I am not a food blogger.

Just keep checking until it is brown, then flip.

Our grandmas didn’t need a recipe, and neither do you.

Look at that peanut butter oozing out.

That is a thing of beauty.

So while I was frying up my quesadillas, I had another thought (besides Peanut Butter and Belly), what if we did peanut butter and chocolate chips?!?!?!

DID I JUST BLOW YOUR MIND?

I KNOW I JUST BLEW MINE!

I folded the above over and fried it up in the pan. What came out of that pan, was pure magic.

This was so good that I licked the plate and debated making more. It tastes like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup married a S’more.

Only 100 times better.

I am so glad I invented this.

Just call me Peanut Butter and Nelly.

Have you ever made dessert quesadillas? Tell me all about other amazing filling ideas in the comments because stress.

I love to write about my family, John Hughes, tacos and Bruce Hornsby. Not necessarily in that order.
