Making a Tuna Melt Quesadilla!

Tuna Melt Quesadilla, Homemade Cole Slaw and Tortilla Chips

Wow! This is so much better than it sounds, trust me! We used to get a tuna melt at a restaurant (they stopped carrying it) – it came with slaw that had a sesame taste to it… it was delicious, and it was HUGE, we would usually split it along with a salad.

I’m trying to think of things to make that are different – I can get stuck in a rut recipe-wise. THIS IS AMAZING!
