Another one of my favorite easy dinners, and the best part is that you can do lots of different toppings on them. Enjoy!

Chicken and Black Bean Quesadillas

  • Tortillas
  • Cheddar cheese, or cheddar/pepper jack cheese blend
  • Chicken
  • Black beans, canned and rinsed
  • 1tsp garlic
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Olive oil
  • other possible toppings: green onion, red beans, pineapple, steak, etc

  1. Slice chicken breast into thin strips, put into frying pan with small amount of heated olive oil
  2. Add the spices to the chicken and cook until the chicken is done (5-6 minutes)
  3. Remove chicken from the pan, set aside
  4. Put tortilla in the bottom and sprinkle a small amount of cheese onto the tortilla
  5. Place chicken and toppings on the cheese, then add an equal amount of cheese
  6. Place other tortilla on top and watch for the bottom of the tortilla to brown slightly
  7. Flip the tortilla and allow cheese to melt completely
  8. Store in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve, and serve with salsa and sour cream
Side suggestions:

  • Dirty rice
  • Red beans and rice
