Quesadillas

When I first had these quesadillas, it was at a friend’s house when my friends and I decided to make dinner instead of ordering in and the results were amazing. We did make enough to feed a small army, so lunch the next day was sorted.

Ingredients

  • 1 Old El Paso Fajita kit (trust me it tastes so much better than the quesadillas kit)
  • 500 g chicken
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1 or 2 medium tomatoes
  • Cheese (for sprinkling over the top)

 

  1. Dice the chicken into small pieces (I use scissors)
  2. Chop the onion and red pepper finely.
  3. Fry the chicken, onion and pepper until the chicken is cooked (light brown)
  4. Once fried, add the seasoning from the fajita kit and keep on a low heat.
  5. Finely chop the tomatoes but do NOT add them to the pan (it makes them soggy)
  6. Place a few the wraps (3 or 4) from the fajita kit in a ceramic tray (or one you would put a pasta bake in)
  7. Put a sprinkle of cheese on one half of the wrap, then add the fillings you want into the wraps, make sure it’s not too full as it needs to fold over.
  8. Make sure you sprinkle cheese  round the edges so that once its melted, the melted cheese seals the pack.
  9. Pop the tray under the grill (200 degrees) for a minute or until golden brown, then flip the wraps and leave for 30-45 seconds.
  10. You want them to still be a little bit soft.

 

I always have homemade guacamole with these, just to dip the quesadillas in.
