First let me tell you that making school lunches is something that I have to do on a regular basis, and I always try to come out with something inventing and different, not only because my girls love a good homemade lunch at school but also because there is nothing more satisfying to me that having a great balanced meal for them.
And this is just one of the reasons to why I love so much this theme today. When I was making my meal plan for the first 2 months of school, yes I know is still early but I like to be prepare, I came out with this different and inventive quesadilla, that I actually made and let the girls try to see if this would be a good option for them.
And let me tell you it was a great idea, they love it so much that of course, I have to make it before school again. But to be honest I don’t mind, it makes me happier than this. This quesadilla is a great hot lunch option, not only because is easy to make, you can find all the ingredients in your pantry and it only takes 10 minutes if your time in the morning.
So, don’t worry about making a hot lunch for the kiddos this school year because we have it cover.

1 tablespoon refried beans
1 slice of tomato
2 slices of bread
Very simple, first, fry the egg leave the yolk runny, toast the bread, I used whole wheat but you can use anything you like, then once the bread is toast, smear the beans in each slice, place the egg and the slice of tomato and enjoy.
