First up, I wanted to share my super easy quesadilla recipe. I have talked about this recipe before in a post here, but have tweaked it just a bit since then, and added these photos below! This has always been a favorite of Eth's and it is perfect for those lazy days when you don't feel like cooking. Kids will love it, and you will too! Please comment below if you gave it a try, I always love to get some feedback!
1 box purdue cooked southwest chicken (near the lunch meat section)
1 bag shredded cheese, we use mexican blend
1 pkg of soft tortillas, fajita size, we use whole wheat
Any desired toppings: sour cream, guacamole, salsa, hot sauce, etc.
-Preheat oven to 350
-Cook chicken pieces for about 30 sec in microwave
-Sprinkle cheese on top of one tortilla
-Top the cheese with chicken
-Top the chicken with MORE CHEESE! (we want this extra cheesy)
-Top with another tortilla
-Bake for about 8 minutes or until cheese is gooey and melted
*All of the above ingredients yields about two whole quesadillas
*If we're really hungry we can each eat one of these, but you can definitely get full from just a half of one...which gives 4 servings instead of 2!
*The southwest chicken gives it a nice flavor, but you could definitely use the plain kind
*You could make this in a more healthy way using fresh cooked chicken (leftovers?) cut into strips seasoned with a homemade taco seasoning, fresh grated cheese, and organic tortillas! This would take more work, but worth it if you are trying to eat clean!
