Continuing on the quest to eat more fruits and veggies…I came up with this recipe.
And OH MY! You MUST try these!
When you eat them…just know that they are a little messy and drippy…
But you’ll get to enjoy licking your fingers and slurping up all the good stuff off of your plate and savoring the flavor.
(Or, if you want to…use a napkin…but really..that is not nearly as fun.)
There’s a bit of everything in these: sweet, spicy, crunchy, creamy, meaty and cheesy.
Chicken Veggie Quesadillas
1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 T. chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet green chili pepper
2 T. olive oil
3/4 cup corn
1 cup cooked chicken, cut into bites
1 medium tomato, cut into bite sized pieces
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 t. chili powder (more or less according to your taste)
10 whole wheat tortillas
Saute peppers and onions in olive oil for 3-4 minutes. In a medium mixing bowl stir together corn, chicken, grated cheese, tomatoes, sour cream and chili powder. Fold in sauted veggies.
In a skillet, lay down one tortilla. Spread filling onto tortilla and top with a second tortilla. Cook over medium low heat for about one minute on each side, or until filling is warm and tortillas are slightly crispy. Continue until all tortillas are filled.
Cut into wedges with pizza cutter.
Now, go make these chicken veggie quesadillas, grab a napkin (or not), and dig in!
