DIRECTIONS

  • Filling -- In a large saute pan, add the garlic, jalapeno and cook 2 minutes, then add the beans, corn, chicken, cilantro, cumin, chili powder and mix well and heat up. That is it.
  • Stuff the Quesadilla -- Top one side of the quesadilla with the filling, top with cheese and fold in half (to form a half circle).
  • Grill -- This can be done on a inside grill pan or outside grill, saute pan, or a 400 degree oven. Just make sure to brush the quesadilla with some oil oil to get a nice crispy golden brown quesadilla. Just a couple of minutes per side is all it takes on the grill or grill pan. Just make sure the cheese melts and the quesadilla gets golden brown. Medium heat is all you need. Each grill inside or out or saute pan is different so just cook until golden brown is all.
  • Serve -- Cut the quesadilla in 2-3 slices. I just use a pizza cutter or a knife works fine. For me -- I serve over a bed of lettuce or Mexican rice, then add maybe some sour cream, salsa and always avocado slices (just my favorite). Use your favorite toppings. Fresh diced tomatoes or black olives are also very good. ENJOY!
