Steve makes a lot of things up when he cooks. He rarely measures things, just adds things as he’s going along. So when I asked him to narrate the quesadillas we had for dinner tonight, this is what he came up with. This is the recipe for one quesadilla. You’ll have to multiply for multiple servings, obviously.
We used two different kinds of peppers. He used canned jalapenos (he was using them up, otherwise he’d use fresh). Jalapenos are too hot for me, so I use mild chilis. That’s the beauty of this recipe… you can use whatever you want. Everything is optional except the tortillas and cheese! Best of all, Josh was able to make his own quesadilla. Anytime we have “hands-on dinner” he loves it.
(I know. weird angle. but it’s the only way I could get all three in one shot. This is before we put the lids on)
- 2 flour tortillas
- chicken or beef, precooked
- tomato, chopped
- onion, chopped
- peppers, chopped
- cheese, shredded (mozz & cheddar)
- guacamole & sour cream to taste
- cilantro, optional, to taste
Preheat oven to about 325. Pile stuff on first tortilla, like a pizza. Top with other tortilla. Bake till cheese is melty. Eat. Repeat, ’cause one is never enough.
looks yummy! Never thought to bake them.
Good heaven’s!!!! I can’t wait to make these. With low fat stuff, this could be made with a lot less calories.
I’m just like Steve. I made a chicken stir fry tonight and Paul asked me where I got the recipe but I just threw stuff together. Some of our best meals are made like that. The only drag about that is one time you’ll LOVE it but you won’t remember what you did different “that time!”
We didn’t have any leftover chicken, so he baked a breast and a pinwheel (thigh/leg section). A little salt & pepper, throw in the oven, bake till done, then shred. It worked really well.
Oh we LOVE this kind of stuff!!!!! Bailey loves chicken Quesadillas!!! Thanks!
