Chicken Quesadillas

Quesadillas are so simple and yummy. They are great when it's hot out and you don't feel like slaving over a hot stove.
These come together in a matter of minutes.

You can buy a quesadilla maker or just make them on the stove with a griddle or skillet.


Ingredients:

1 chicken breast half
salt
pepper
cumin
1/4- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 - 1/2 cup green chili pepper OR bell pepper
6 -8 ( 7 " ) flour tortillas, depending on how much you want to stuff in them
2 cups shredded cheddar-jack OR cheddar cheese

Cook the chicken breast half and season with salt, pepper, and cumin.
Cool slightly and chop into small pieces.
On each flour tortilla, add some chicken, onion, pepper, and cheese to one half.
Fold the tortillas in half.
Heat the griddle or skillet.
Cook the quesadillas 2 at a time, unless you have a large griddle and can do more
Lay  tortillas on it and cook for a couple minutes until cheese has started to melt and the bottom is crisped or lightly browned..
With a wide spatula, carefully turn over the quesadilla and cook for another 2 minutes.
Keep the quesadillas warm in a 300 degree Fahrenheit while you cook the remaining ones.

Serves 3-4 people as a meal.
Serves 6 as an appetizer.
