Every once in a while I think I might be losing my mind. Okay. I think that more than just every once in a while.
Regardless, this recipe has made me question my cognitive bearings. The other night I decided to whip up some quesadillas for dinner. Not wanting to reinvent the recipe, I did a search on my blog to find out how I made it before. I know I made them once before. I’m sure I posted it here. I remember some of the comments.
However, I couldn’t find the recipe on here anywhere. I dug through my wordpress files. I searched various titles, categories and tags. Nothing. Squat nada.
So, I started from scratch making up a new recipe. It still bugs me that I don’t know what happened to the other one. Maybe I never posted it. Maybe I really am losing my mind. Oh well. Let’s have a quesadilla and it will all be okay.
Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
- 2-3 cups cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
- 1 can Fire Roasted or regular diced tomatoes, drained
- 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis, drained
- 1 can corn, drained
- 3 cups shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
- flour tortillas
Stir all the ingredients together, except the tortillas. Grease a skillet or griddle, or spray it with cooking spray. Place a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread the chicken filling over it. Top with another tortilla. Place this on the hot griddle or skillet. Cook until browned, then flip to brown the other side.
You can also spread the filling over half a tortilla and then fold. Place on the hot griddle and press down to help it stay folded.
Cut into triangles and serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole or whatever fixings you like and have on hand. These made me want guacamole so badly, but I had no avocados. Very sad.
Depending on how full you fill them, this will make enough for 8-10 people. I made them for 4 of us one evening. Three of us ate leftovers at lunch and I put enough extra filling in the freezer for another dinner.
