It’s hot out! And I’ll do just about anything to avoid turning on the oven in the summer.<!–
This recipe is great for a quick dinner and you won’t sweat making it.
Chicken Bacon Quesadillas
2 cups rotisserie chicken, diced in small pieces
½ red onion, diced
½ red pepper, diced
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Monterey jack cheese
8 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
Brown bacon then set aside to drain on a paper towel. Use some of the bacon grease and sauté the diced red onion and red pepper.
Spray top and bottom of the quesadilla/grill. Place one flour tortilla on it. Sprinkle cheeses, chicken, bacon, onion and red pepper on the tortilla. Top with another flour tortilla and press until lightly browned. Cut into 6-8 triangles and serve with sour cream, tomatoes and lettuce, and black beans*.
*Sauté some garlic, red onion, and red pepper in the leftover bacon grease and add to canned black beans. Salt and pepper to taste. So good!
Note: If you don’t have a quesadilla maker, you can use a Panini press/grill. You can also use a non-stick pan on the stove, but remember to flip it to brown both sides.
