An easy way to change up Meatless Monday with this Southwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Over the last few years, I’ve been trying to add more meatless meals to our menu plan. When you are feeding a meat-loving husband, sometimes that’s not always the easiest. And honestly, meatless to us usually means soup or pasta.

But I’m starting to discover that there is more than just soup or pasta!

If you’ve been following along this month, you will remember me talking all about Little Victories – those little things that help us to make big changes. I’ve always believed that those little victories are the easiest way to succeed in whatever we are trying to do or accomplish, and I’ve loved this opportunity to talk about some healthier substitutions we can make.

I’m here to talk about those little victories one more time today, but while I still think it’s important to make those little changes in the food we choose to eat, I want to talk about a different kind of little victory.

Taco seasoned chicken and refried beans make up the filling in this Rio Grande Chicken Quesadilla Recipe that is family friendly and filling.

My favorite chicken quesadilla recipe - Rio Grande Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

Originally posted June 1, 2008 – As I go back and remake recipes from the archives here on Taste and Tell, I will sometimes look for favorite recipes that I think need a new chance in the spotlight. Other times, I’ll look for the really, really bad photos that need retaken asap. This chicken quesadilla recipe falls into both of those categories. Not only has it been a family favorite for many, many years, but the original photo was so bad that it’s not surprising that it’s been lost in the archives. I’ve seriously made these quesadillas more times that I could count. They are a little different from your typical quesadillas because of the refried beans. They make these substantial enough for a filling dinner that my family loves!

FitBit Giveaway

Earlier this month, I told you about my FitBit and my struggles to hit my step goal each day. Well, after that post, I decided that I needed to commit myself. And actually start hitting that goal every day. Especially since I tend to get sedentary – I needed something to motivate me to get up and get going.

And guess what? I have hit my 10,000 step goal the last 12 days in a row. I know – giving myself a pat on the back! But I do have to say – I am 100% in love with my FitBit. It has motivated me so much. It’s just part of my day now.

And today is your lucky day!! I have teamed up with some of my blogger friends to giveaway not one, but two FitBits, as well as extra bands!! These would be a different and fun Valentine’s day for you and your sweetheart. Fun, huh?!
