Here's an easy way to make family-favorite, cheesy quesadillas that are just as tasty as those served in restaurants.
cost per recipe: $12.35
Heat the oven to 425°F.
Cook the chicken in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until well browned and cooked through, stirring often. Stir in the soup and 1/2 cup picante sauce. Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
Spread about 1/3 cup chicken mixture onto half of each tortilla to within 1/2 inch of the edge. Brush the edges of the tortillas with water. Fold the tortillas over the filling and press to seal. Place the filled tortillas onto 2 baking sheets.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the quesadillas are hot. Cut each quesadilla in half.
Heat the broth, water and remaining picante sauce in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Stir in the rice. Cover the saucepan and remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve the rice with the quesadillas.
the chicken is a FANTASTIC touch
BRAVO! this recipe ios phenoniall like you have no idea. this is so easy for family u have no idea
So quick and easy!
My roommates in college and I would make this recipe, it was one of our favorites. Good for poor kids on a budget...
When I got married I made it for my husband and it became a frequent request.
I made it tonight for my son, a very picky eater, and he loved it as well.
This recipe has become a family favorite.
This recipe made it's way into our family about 1997, when we saw the recipe on a label of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup. We have enjoyed it ever since and probably make it at least once a month. It has been passed on to friends of the family as well, who also enjoy it. We serve it with the fiesta rice or a spanish-type rice as well as refried beans, sour cream and salsa. So easy to make and just very delicious for all ages. The kids love it too.
Chicken Quesadillas & Fiesta Rice
I used Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup to add more spice, as well as seasoning the chicken before cooking it in the pan. I used healthy amounts of paprika, Cajun, and black pepper, and this time, I tried seasoning salt, onion powder, and garlic powder as well. Very spicy, but very cheap and flavorful, and I could definitely see someone using canned chicken in place of fresh if time is a big deal.
Made it as a dinner for two. Was an ez to do Mexican meal on a budget, and would recommend for people to try.
