Spicy Chicken Quesadillas - My Goof Turned Good

"Simple, spicy and quick! Let me explain the title: I had bought ingredients for 2 different recipes and was making the quesadillas. As I dumped the second can of tomatoes with chiles into the mix, I realized they were for the other recipe! Ooops! Well, guess what? It turned out pretty good! :) As most of my recipes, don't make this if your family doesn't care for spicy food."

directions

  • Strain the tomatoes using a strainer. Make sure all liquid is out.
  • Mix shredded chicken, tomatoes, cheese, and onions.
  • Lay out 4 of the tortillas. Spread a thin even layer of the mix over the tortillas - making sure to cover the entire tortilla. Cover each with extra tortilla.
  • Using non-stick pan, lightly brown on both sides, making sure cheese melts.
  • Slice into 4-6 pieces and serve with sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo, salad --
  • We use this as a meal, but if you want to use it as appetizers, substitute the burrito-sized tortillas with 16 taco-sized. Spread the mixture over 8 of them and top with the other 8. Slice into 4 pieces.

  1. This was so so good easy and simple! And surprisingly hardy! my boyfriend and I loved it so much we like a little kick so we added a little hot sauce in the mix and then a little more in some sour cream for dipping! It was perfect! A definite keeper! Thanks :)
     
  2. It's amazing how someone's "goof" can turn into such an amazing dish! My kids request it all the time and can even cook it for themselves. A MUST TRY :)

My family started a "Family Night" to expand our cooking knowledge about 5 years ago. Every Thursday someone has to cook something they have never cooked before - or use an ingredient they have never used. Each week is a different cook - me, my husband, my son, or my BFF (adopted sister). Thus, we found Recipezaar and have become faithful browsers! :) Please feel free to review my posts honestly. Everyone has different tastes! Thanks for the reviews!
