Want something quick and easy for dinner?

Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla
makes one quesadilla, takes 20 minutes

4 ounces of chicken
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
salt & pepper

1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
1/4 sliced white onion
1/4 sliced bell peppers
1/4 jalapeno, diced
8 ounces monterey jack cheese
1 burrito sized tortilla* (or gluten free tortillas)
salsa
cilantro
sour cream

Add a tiny layer of oil to the bottom of a small skillet. Add your chicken and sprinkle with the seasonings. Sautee on medium heat, flipping the chicken after a several minutes. Once the chicken has been cooked all the way through, shred it.

In a second skillet, sautee 1 tablespoon of oil with the onions, bell peppers, jalapenos, salt & pepper just until the veggies are a bit transparent.

Spread a tortilla flat on a plate. Sprinkle a layer of cheese across half of it. Add the sauteed onions, peppers, and chicken, then sprinkle on some more cheese. Fold this in half. Place your quesadilla on a clean large skillet at medium heat. When cheese begins melting, flip it over (should just be a couple minutes). Once both sides are golden and the cheese is fully melted, this tasty dinner is ready to go! Top it off with some salsa, sour cream and cilantro.

Enjoy the simplicity 🙂
