Cooking Challenge: Quick Quesadillas

by - 8:11 AM

I love Mexican food. Tacos, fajitas, nachos, etc. etc. But without a doubt quesadillas are my favorite Mexican food and it's almost always what I order when I go out for Mexican.

Despite my love for them, I'd never tried to recreate them at home until this week.

Like all my recipes, I tried to put a bit of a healthy spin on the quesadillas by adding lots of veggies and using whole grain shells.

Ingredients:
Whole grain tortillas
Pepper
Half an onion
Spinach
Cheese
Pre-cooked chicken
Greek yogurt
Salsa

Start by chopping the onion and pepper.

Then toss onion and pepper into a skillet with a little bit of oil and saute until the veggies start to soften.

While the veggies are cooking, cut the chicken into small pieces.

Then throw it into the skillet with the veggies to warm.

Saute everything for about five minutes then remove from heat.

Place a tortilla shell on a plate and sprinkle on a little bit of cheese.

Top the cheese with the warm veggies, chicken and spinach.

Then sprinkle with a little more cheese.

Place another tortilla shell on top and then pop everything in the microwave for one minute.

When it comes out, cut the quesadilla into triangles. Place a dollop of Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream) and salsa on your plater for dipping and dig in.

This recipe was surprisingly easy and really tasty. I ate the leftovers all week long and never got sick of them.
