Chicken Quedsadillas

Here's another favorite of Mike and me.  The boys usually don't eat's usually something I make when the boys eat something really quick, and then after their in bed I make dinner for  Mike and me .

Basically these are the ingredients I use...I typically have them all in the house so it's something I can make last minute.

First, to go into the pan is the chicken,

then the salsa,

and finally the spice - oregano, cumin, a dash of salt, and I add onion powder or minced onions, instead of the green onions that the recipe calls for.

mix together and simmer until warm all the way through

While the chicken mixture is simmering, butter one side of each tortilla.

After that, comes the fun part, making the quesadilla

top with another tortilla and throw it in the oven.  about 10 minutes later....

out comes this awesome, delicious supper that no one could turn down.
