Chicken Quesadilla Recipe
  • In a medium non-stick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
  • Add onions and cook until translucent, 8-10 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of butter in the same skillet and melt over medium heat. Add the bell peppers and cook just until slightly softened. Remove from heat.
  • Using a large grill pan, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Assemble quesadillas by placing desired fillings (chicken, onion/pepper mixture, cilantro, spinach and cheese) to cover the tortilla. Place a second tortilla over the top.
  • Using a wide spatula, carefully place in the prepared skillet. Cook 3-5 minutes or until slightly browned. Carefully turn over and cook on second side until slightly browned.
  • Remove from skillet and place on a plate. Cut in half and then cut each half into 3 triangles. Serve with Pico de Gallo, sour cream and any other desired Mexican fixings.
