Kickin’ Quesadillas made into a Mezzetta Recipe

Mezzetta Recipe Kickin Quesadillas

Today’s post is sponsored by Mezzetta, but my love for their delicious snacks is all my own!

For me personally, Holidays always bring to mind food.  We had two different table of goodies for the special gathering for the Holidays, which didn’t include the full dinner we’d also have.  I remember my Dad when he was alive, loving the green olives and we always have to have them on our snack tables.  Anytime I see those, I think of my Dad and his love for those and it makes me smile in memory.  In our family, there wasn’t such a thing as too much food. As it would always get eaten or frozen to eat later.  The more the merrier in every aspect of the Holiday.  Which I have carried over to making my own parties and Holiday memories.  My husband and I made our very own Mezzetta Recipe with these Kickin’ Quesadillas.

I am not the creative one in the kitchen, my husband is.  He can throw together any type of dinner and it’ll most likely taste excellent.  He won’t be able to make the same thing twice, exactly, but it’ll be close.  I am amazed at the skills he has in the kitchen.  Give me a recipe and I am okay, but there is no way I could be creative enough to create my own recipe.

The optional sour cream side was just a mix of Jason’s that was some sour cream and the Mezzetta Red Hot Chili Pepper Spread, no real measurement there.
