  3. cut up your pepper into strips but not too long.

  10. 2 -3 mins later add chicken.

  17. Spoon filling on half of the flour tortilla bringing very close to the edge - but not falling out.
  18. top with grated cheese.
  19. Fold the flour tortilla in half and press together so the top sticks to the filling and cheese a bit.
  20. gently place on the cookie sheet.
  21. continue creating your quesadillas until you have used up all your filling.
  22. Place in preheated oven - middle rack.
  23. Bake for approx 20 - 25 minutes - until cheese is melted and filling hot -
  24. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
