With the Winter Olympics coming up later this week, an appetizer recipe seemed just the thing, especially in light of Olympics watch parties that may be taking place. This particular recipe could work as either an appetizer or lunch.

We like to have quesadillas for lunch sometimes, along with fresh fruit; the kids love when we have them. They're super easy to make, and they're pretty healthy, depending on your ingredients.
