Quesadillas have evolved over the years but one thing has never changed, they are a quick and easy substitution for a grilled cheese! Traditionally these are just a tortilla that has been filled with a mixture of ingredients and had cheese added to it to act as a binding agent. It is then folded and lightly cooked to a nice golden.
For the Filling
- Cheddar Cheese
- Chili Powder
To Bring it Together
For the Filling:Add some butter to a large nonstick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and chili powder and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from skillet and turn off heat.
Finishing it off:Butter one side of a tortilla and place it butter side down on a nonstick skillet heated to medium heat. Spread a handful of cheese on half of a tortilla and top with the chicken. Fold the empty side over the filling to make a half moon shape and, press lightly. Cook two minutes per side, or until golden brown and lightly crisp. Repeat.
