Cinco de Mayo is RIGHT around the corner and we Texans celebrate this holiday with vigor! :-)
I love Mexican food so much that when I lived in Australia for a month my sweet dad sent me chips and salsa!
Needless to say, "Beef, it's what's for dinner" might be our Texan 'motto' for food. . . but "quiero comida mexicana" would definitely be a close second! :-)
This recipe for chicken quesadillas is SO easy, quick, and DELICIOUS! Perfect for weeknights or when feeding a crowd! :-)
Quick Chicken Quesadillas
6 oz refrigerated cooked Southwest-flavor chicken breast strips
1/2 cup Chunky salsa
1 package flour tortillas for burritos
2 cups finely shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend
1/4 cup sour cream
Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. In small bowl, mix chicken and salsa. Spray 1 side of 1 tortilla with cooking spray; place sprayed side down in 10-inch nonstick skillet. Layer with one-fourth of the chicken mixture and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Top with another tortilla; spray top of tortilla with cooking spray.Cook uncovered over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, carefully turning after 2 minutes, until golden brown. Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken mixture and cheese. To serve, cut quesadillas into wedges. Serve with sour cream and, if desired, additional salsa.
