Take a look at this little beauty! That is the delicious inside of my chicken quesadillas before I put the top on. I usually use whatever meat I have leftover in my fridge (steak, chicken, pulled pork, etc), and in this case I used leftover grilled chicken.
1 sweet onion chopped or sliced, whatever you prefer
Several sweet peppers sliced into rings or 1 bell pepper sliced
1 jalapeño sliced into rings
1 garlic clove chopped
2 T butter
Salt and pepper
Chopped meat of your choice (about 1/2 cup per quesadilla)
Mixed shredded cheese
1. Put your peppers, onions, salt, pepper, drizzle of olive oil, and butter in a skillet. Sauté about 15 minutes on medium to high heat, then add garlic and sauté another five minutes.
2. In a different skillet you can either drizzle a little olive oil in it or rub with a little butter to get it ready for the tortilla. Place tortilla in, sprinkle with one layer of cheese, and put as much meat and veggies as you want on there.
3. Put another layer of cheese on top of the meat and veggies and put another tortilla on top. *Note* I used flour for my husband and corn tortillas for me. I let them cook a little longer in a little extra butter and got it nice and crispy. Let me tell ya, it was delicious!
4. Flip that bad boy over and allow both sides to become deliciously golden. That was so easy, I bet you didn’t even have to set your wine glass down!
Mmm, that looks really good. Don’t suppose you have a simple to follow recipe for enchiladas? I want to make them so bad but I don’t know how to do the “pulled” chicken thing.
These cheesy enchiladas were the first ones I ever put on my website! They’re super easy and freeze perfectly. If you’re looking for a chicken enchilada recipe, I’ve got another one that’s yummy but don’t have pictures of it on here yet that I could email you. The other recipe I use but haven’t posted on here yet uses cream cheese sauce instead of sour cream sauce for chicken enchiladas. It’s a little more complicated. Actually, I think I’ll make it tonight and post the recipe later! 🙂
Oh, nice. I’d love to see the one for the chicken!
Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas is up!
Rachel. I love that you can do this without setting your wine glass down!!! I’ve got to try that!! Looks delicious – sounds like the title of a good cooking class- “things to cook without setting your wine down”
These sound so good, thanks for sharing this delicious looking recipe.
