Chicken Quesadillas

May 28, 2010

After making a whole 5lb chicken for two, we had PLENTY of leftovers. It was the bf’s great idea to make chicken quesadillas- or for me to make them- but I was gladly up for it!

One quick trip to Trader Joes later and I had the makings of a really yummy quesadilla.

Heres how it all came together:

  • 1 package of  rice tortillas (thought they were an interesting change)
  • 1 package of  shredded mexican cheese mix
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 diced tomatoes
  • sour cream
  • lime
  • Cayenne pepper- to taste
  • Leftover chicken

In a pan, saute the chicken, onion, garlic and cayenne pepper. Once the onions are cooked through, fill your quesadillas with cheese and flip as often as necessary until the cheese is melted. Cut and serve with sour cream, chopped tomatoes (or salsa) and drizzle with lime.
