Fajita Quesadilla

I can't underestimate how many times a week I could eat quesadillas, or overestimate how much I love eating them.

The simple quesadilla is my favorite food. It's fast, it's cheap, and so easy to make. Did I mention delicious? That should be the number 1 reason for eating anything!

This is the fajita quesadilla. I'm sure many people know how to make melted cheese between a tortilla. Really, that is like kindergarden type of meals.

But for those who want a delicious, step up the lunch scale kind of quesadilla, definitely try this next time.

I also want to add, this is a total party food. Its a definite crowd pleaser and can be easily made ahead and kept warm in the oven. Yum!

Fajita Quesadilla                                 Serves 4

4 large flour tortillas
3 tbl butter
2 cups 1% mozzarella cheese
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into 1" strips
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced into 1" strips
1/4 large yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup chicken pieces (perhaps from a leftover whole chicken?)

1. In a small pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and sautee vegetables until tender, add chicken and cook until heated through.

2. In a large skillet, heat to medium. Butter one side of your tortillas and place in the skillet, butter side down. Fill one side of the tortilla with half the cheese and sauteed vegetable mix. Top with a little more cheese if desired.

This is my 2nd quesadilla, you can see the 1st one under the top one.

Fold over other side of the tortilla. If you are making two and have enough room, butter and add your tortilla repeating the steps to fill, and fold. Cover with a lid and let cook for 2 mins.

3. Remove the lid, with tongs flip the quesadillas, recover and cook an additional 1-2 mins. Move to a cutting board and let sit for 1-2 mins to let cheese settle.

4. Slice into triangles and serve with sour cream and salsa for dipping.
