Smoked Salmon Quesadillas with Chipotle Sour Cream

Smoked Salmon Quesadillas with Chipotle Sour Cream

Sometimes on Sunday we have big Sunday suppers and on other occasions we enjoy simple snacks and smaller meals.  Smoked Salmon Quesadillas were the perfect afternoon snack after returning from a trip.

That’s right, last week our family took a little trip.  Off the ranch, for real!  Before we left I had an afternoon of cooking up sweets and snacks to share with you while I was gone.  As usual, Murphy’s Law took over and I had to make a flying trip to town and it totally blew my plans!

Well now that I’m home and tackling a mountain of laundry and catching up on the 650+ emails in my inbox I wanted to share something quick and easy and Smoked Salmon Quesadillas are just that, plus they are pretty darn tasty!

I love quesadillas, they are the perfect way to use up little bits of leftovers from the refrigerator, so many possibilities.  I kicked these Smoked Salmon Quesadillas up with a little Chipotle Sour Cream.  Honestly, I am such a sissy when it comes to spicy foods, I loved it but I was sweating by the time I was finished eating.

I have some great holiday recipes coming up in the next week or two for you but in the meantime, if you are looking for quick and easy I have you covered!
