This was a perfect lunch today! Since I'm cooking for one this week I took the easy way out; bought a bag of frozen mexican veggies, which included, corn, black beans, onions and peppers. Cooked them for a few seconds in the microwave. Added them on top of diced chicken breast and then topped off with a Mexican cheese mixture, tomato, onion and cilantro. Yummy! Thanks Sue for sharing! Made for ZWT 5 Mexico

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a skillet over low heat.
  2. Spread a small amount of butter evenly over one side of tortilla and place tortilla buttered side down in the skillet.
  3. For each tortilla, sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over 1/2 of the tortilla and top with chopped chilies, chicken, tomato, green onions, and cilantro.
  4. Fold the other side over the top and press down gently.
  5. Cook quesadilla over low heat 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.
  6. Remove quesadilla from skillet and keep warm on a plate in a low oven (300F).
  7. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  8. When finished, serve quesadillas cut in three sections (using a pizza cutter works great) and garnished with guacamole, sour cream and salsa, if desired.
