Quick and Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas

IMG_1716

We finally found some shredded CHEDDAR CHEESE at the Austrian grocery store here! It’s often the small things you miss when you’re so far away from home. We thought what better way to use it than to make deliciously cheesy chicken quesadillas! This is just a super simple recipe and takes under 30 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

  1. Chicken, cut into cubes and seasoned with taco seasoning
  2. Tortillas
  3. Bell peppers, sliced
  4. Onions, sliced
  5. Jalapeños
  6. Cheddar cheese, shredded
  7. Olive oil (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)

For the guacamole on the side:

  1. 1 avocado
  2. couple cherry tomatoes
  3. juice from half of a lime
  4. salt/pepper

Directions:

  • First, sauté the onions in some olive oil for a few minutes
  • Add the seasoned chicken
  • (I made my own taco seasoning and it’s delicious, for the recipe click here

  • Once the chicken is almost cooked all the way, add the bell peppers
  • Cook until bell peppers are tender and chicken is cooked through
  • Set aside
  • In a separate pan, lay down one tortilla and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top, add the cooked chicken mixture, and some jalapeños (I tried to keep it as “healthy” as possible so I avoided using oil in this step)
  • Cover with the second tortilla, let cook until cheese is about melted, then flip over to the other side

I always like to serve Quesadillas with a side of sour cream and guacamole. I didn’t go all out with the guacamole recipe this time. Instead I just used my chopper and put 1 avocado, a couple cherry tomatoes, juice of half of a lime, salt/pepper, and done!
