Quesadillas are so quick and easy to prepare, and this recipe is no exception. Using canned chicken, shredded cheese and prepared salsa ensure great taste and convenience.
cost per recipe: $4.00
Heat the oven to 400°F. Stir the chicken, 1/4 cup cheese, chiles and chili powder in a medium bowl.
Place the tortillas onto 2 baking sheets. Spread 1/4 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 the edges to seal.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the filling is hot. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Serve with the salsa and sour cream, if desired.
A tasty appetizer
The photo is a bit deceiving. My tortilla did not get brown like you see in the picture. Does anyone have a recommendation for what I could spread on top to make it golden brown? I actually transferred mine to a pan and browned it for a few seconds on each side.
Quick and Yummy
This recipe is perfect for a quick, easy lunch or dinner and is so versatile! I love adding fresh veggies, raw or sautéed, super yummy! And the kids LOVE it!
Easy to assemble, fast and delicious!!
The first time I try any recipe, I always follow it completely! This was very tasty just the way it is written! However, next time I make it, I will increase the chili powder and possibly try some jalapeño jack cheese.
