Baked Chicken Quesadilla

I was on my way home from the funeral of a dear friend and decided to do some therapy grocery shopping.  Tortillas were buy one get one free, and I had some leftover chicken, rice, vegetable, bean soup in the fridge.  My son, Donnie, has been asking for Quesadillas.  It was meant to be.

1 package soft flour tortillas

2-3 c. leftover chicken soup (liquid drained out)

1 package shredded Mexican cheese

Salsa, Guacamole, Sour Cream, Olives, etc. for garnish.

Cover two baking sheets with foil and spray with coconut oil.

Lay out as many tortillas as fit on the baking sheets (I had three each).

Place leftover soup, minus the liquid,  into a food process and pulse until the consistency of tuna salad.

Layer chicken on each of the tortillas.

Top with cheese.

Place another tortilla on top like a lid.

Spray tops with coconut oil.

Bake at 400 F for 10 minutes or until golden, rotating halfway through.

These were a huge hit, and easy and quick to make.  No wasted leftovers either!!

 

I had some leftover London Broil and wanted to make something different.  I shredded it up and made quesadilla with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese.  Yummy!!

2-3 c. shredded beef

1 large onion, roughly chopped

1/2 each green, red, yellow, and orange peppers, chopped

8 oz. sliced mushrooms

Salt and pepper

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. minced garlic

1 Tbsp. butter

2 c. Mexican shredded cheese

Flour tortillas (I used fajita style)

Saute onion, peppers, and mushrooms seasoned with salt and pepper to taste in olive oil until softened.

Add garlic and butter.  Cook about 1 minute.

Add in beef and toss until heated through.

Keep warm over low heat.

Heat tortillas in oven or microwave.

Heat large saute pan over medium high heat.

Place one tortilla in pan and heat for one minute.  Flip.

Top cheese and then with meat and veggie mixture.  Sprinkle with  a little more cheese, and top with another tortilla.  Heat for about a minute, and carefully flip over to brown the second side.

Cut with pizza cutter and serve with lots of greens!

Top with cheese, then chili, then cheese. You may have to remove it from the heat while layering so the bottom tortilla doesn’t over cook.

Top with another tortilla and carefully flip over to cook the other side.

Cut using a pizza cutter and top with sour cream and salsa to taste.

A little chopped fresh cilantro would have made it prettier. (which I should’ve bought when it was on sale the other day!)

As turkey leftover use goes, this was one of our favorites 🙂
