5 Days of Plantain Day 4: Plantain Quesadillas

5 Days of Plantain Day 4: Plantain Quesadillas
Intro:
So the other day I was looking through my archive and I realized that only two of my most recent recipes were plantain based! (This famous one and that healthy one.) ABOMINATION! How is it possible that I, Tatashey – the one that eats plantain almost daily –  have so few plantain recipes?? I was baffled. Therefore, I have decided to honor greatness of plantain by dedicating a whole week to it. Each day, I will post a unique plantain recipe for you all to check out and try yourselves.

It’s Day 4 of the 5 Days Of Plantain Challenge! The past 3 days have been awesome so far and I’m kind of sad to see it coming to an end so quickly 🙁 But it’s all good, all is not lost because I have another “Series” coming up soon *fingers crossed*. Who wants to guess what it’s about? Anyone?

Anyway, today’s recipe is a fairly simple yet delicious Plantain Quesadilla. Random fact: I cannot spell “quesadilla” without first googling the word. Every. Single. Time. Whatever, don’t judge me.

As usual, if you missed them, check out the Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 recipes
