Easy, Cheesy Quesadillas
These are super easy, and sooo tasty!
Fully cooked chicken, cut up in pieces
To begin, put one tortilla on a plate and sprinkle shredded cheese on. Don't get it too close to the edges, or you'll end up with a mess. I use 1-2 tablespoons of cheese. Then I add two heaping tablespoons of salsa. Next, evenly distribute pieces of chicken. Put second tortilla on top and move to Quesadilla cooker (Or, onto skillet).
Brown evenly on both sides if using skillet method, or cook until light turns green on quesadilla maker. Let cool a couple of minutes, then cut into wedges. Oh, and don't pay attention to the little pieces of my quesadilla maker on my counter...I keep telling myself I'm going to get a new one, yet I end up rigging it up each time!
I love to make this because you can please everyone with it. You can put just about anything inside them. This is one of our "go-to" dinners when we have leftover chicken, which was the case tonight. The kids in our house prefer just chicken and cheese, so this is a perfect way to make them a dinner they'll eat and a dinner we'll also love. Here are some other variations we've done:
Turkey, bacon, cheese
Chicken, bacon, cheese
Sauteed onions and peppers, chicken, cheese (aka fajita quesadillas)
We haven't really found a combination we haven't liked!
