Chicken Quesadillas


I love quesaillas! It’s such a delicious but simple dinner. The great thing is that they are so easy and require just a few simple ingredients. It’s hard to not enjoy a simple quesadilla. These were made with chicken coated in a dry rub and then pan fried. I love the mix of the cumin and chili powder. It really adds a lot of flavor to the quesadilla. Too often the chicken doesn’t have enough flavor for me. This was a pretty simple dinner, but definitely a good one, and one that is nice to turn to on a week night.


Chicken Quesadillas

2 chicken breasts, pounded thin
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
Olive oil (enough to coat the pan)
4 tortilla shells
Mexican cheese (use as much as you prefer)
1 can black beans

Mix together cumin and chili powder. Lightly rub over chicken. Sprinkle oregano over chicken. Pan fry in olive oil until done. Let cool. Cut in small pieces.

Coat a large frying pan (as big or slightly bigger than the tortilla shell) with cooking spray. Add tortilla, cover the whole shell with cheese (use as much as you like), then add chicken and black beans on one side. Cook on medium or medium-low heat until tortilla bottom is brown and cheese is melted. Fold over, cut into wedges, and serve.
