Quesadillas are quick and easy to make and fun to eat. Adults and children love them (although sometimes with different ingredients!) and they make great party fare. Serve them as a main dish or as a great appetizer. They also make wonderful snacks or light lunches.

In a medium heavy skillet sauté the onions, garlic, and peppers in the 2 Tbs. oil until soft. Add the chile peppers and tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes more. Add the chicken and stir well to combine. Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy medium sized pan over medium low heat, Place a tortilla in the pan and sprinkle with 1/4 C. cheese. Add about a quarter of the chicken mixture and top with another 1/4 C. cheese. Cover with another tortilla and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the quesadilla over and cook for an additional two minutes. Remove from the heat and cut into wedges. Keep warm while frying the remaining quesadillas. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

  • These are delicious. I omit the garlic, bell pepper and plum tomatoes and use either Rotelle tomatoes or a jar of salsa. It cuts down on prep time and cooking time without sacrificing taste.
