Barbecue BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas
Serves 4-6 [depending if you add more veggies]

  • 8-10 whole wheat or whole grain tortillas [sundried tomato would be good too]
  • 2 cups chicken, shredded
  • 1 small vidalia onion [or white or yellow works too, just vidalia are a tad sweeter]
  • 1/2 medium yellow, green, or red bell pepper, diced small
  • 2 whole green onions, chopped small
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups shredded, sharp cheddar cheese- or Colby blend
  • 1/2 cup [give or take, depending how much you like] your favorite barbecue sauce
  • sour cream to taste [ I like to put about 1/2 cup in a plastic zip sandwich baggie, and snip a tiny piece off of one corner, so I can squeeze drizzle lines of sour cream just where I want it]

  1. Heat a skillet on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Slice the onion, and green pepper, sprinkle with salt and add it to the pan to caramelize – about 10- 15 minutes. Transfer onions to a bowl when finished.
  2. To assemble quesadillas, add some cheddar cheese on the bottom. Top with layer of chicken, a drizzle of barbecue sauce, drizzle of sour cream, caramelized onions [and green peppers], sprinkle of chopped green onions [about 1 TB per Quesadilla], and bit more cheese on top.
  3. Heat the same skillet you used for the onions on medium heat and spray it with cooking spray. Add quesadilla to the pan, letting cook on each side about 5 minutes, or until tortilla is crispy and cheese is melted.

 **I also like to add some corn, and diced tomato [1 heaping TBSP of EACH per quesadilla] to these to get a nice complete meal out of the deal**
