Who doesn't like quesadillas? They're kid-friendly and a nice lunchtime meal or appetizers for us grown-ups, too. They're easy to put together, popular at parties, and just plain yummy. I suppose they're quite versatile, too, and open to tweaking if you feel like being adventurous.
I start off with a flour tortilla on a greased cookie sheet, topped with a bit of my homemade salsa.
Season a chicken breast or two with some chili powder, cumin, paprika, and whatever else you feel like adding, pan fry it, and then slice or shred it.
Place the chicken on top of the salsa and top with cheese.
Top with another flour tortilla and pop it into the oven to broil for a few minutes on each side. Cut it into wedges and serve with a dollop of sour cream and a bit more salsa, and you're good to go. Quick, easy, and very satisfying. If I had kids, I'd totally make this a lunchtime project for them.
The recipe is in my TasteBook.
