Hot and spicy! Great as a main dish with a side salad. Hot and spicy! Great as a main dish with a side salad.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb. grilled chicken breast, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
    1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
    1/2 cup jalapeno peppers, chopped
    2 tsp. canola oil
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    4 10" flour tortillas
    Non stick cooking spray


In a large fry pan, heat the canola oil. Add the chopped onions and cook until limp - about 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and jalapenos and cook until just warmed through. Add the chopped chicken breast and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until warmed thoroughly.

Heat a large griddle pan or fry pan on medium-high heat. Remove a tortilla from the package and spray one side lightly with cooking spray. Place oiled side down on the griddle pan and immediately sprinkle the entire tortilla with 1/2 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese (cover to about 1/4" from the edge all around).

Let tortilla "cook" until cheese starts to melt and the tortilla gets toasty. Sprinkle 1/4 of the chicken/peppers mixture over HALF of the cheese. Then fold over the other side, cut into slices and serve.

Great with salsa or light sour cream or even guacamole, if you like that stuff!

Makes four (4) quesadillas.
