Here’s another quick, tasty recipe that pleases and satisfies. They are perfect for many celebrations. We will be serving these Sunday during the Super bowl!
You will need:
- 1 package 6” white flour tortillas
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 cans chicken breast meat (12.5oz can) drained
- 1 can diced green chilies (drained)
To Assemble quesadillas:
Empty the chicken into a large mixing bowl. Use a fork to flake apart the chicken chunks. Add the diced green chilies and the shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well. Spread about ¼ cup of this mixture over half of a flour tortilla. Fold the other half over meat/cheese mixture to form a half moon shaped quesadilla. Continue building quesadillas until all the meat/cheese mixture has been used.
To fry quesadillas:
In large 12” skillet, melt 1 Tablespoon butter over medium heat. Vegetable oil may also be used to fry the quesadillas. Place 2 half moon quesadillas into melted butter. Take care not to burn tortillas. Flip quesadillas when they are golden brown on bottom side and brown the other side. Remove from skillet. Melt another Tablespoon of butter and continue flipping, browning, and melting until all quesadillas have been cooked.
Use a pizza cutter to evenly cut quesadilla into 4 triangles. Serve right away with your favorite toppings such as sour cream, more shredded cheese, salsa, and guacamole. Eat, lick fingers, repeat, and enjoy!
