Here is part 2 of my visit with Chef Dana Speers of President’s Choice Test Kitchen and Loblaws Company Ltd. Dietitian Tina Stewart. There’s 1 more part to this visit, a look at the new PC yogurts. I’ll try and work on that video this weekend… If you’ve been reading my blog you know that I’m not a huge fan of beans but I tried this Quasadilla and it was pretty good. I have already bought the ingredients and am going to make it at home this weekend! Another recipe, I highly recommend.. You can check out the President’s Choice Website for this recipe and other great recipes as well! Use gluten free tortillas and you got a great gluten-free meal! Healthy and filling!
