Chicken Quesadillas

Such and easy dinner that everyone will love. You can pick and choose your perfect filling, and kids especially love having that control. That includes my big 31 year old kid, lol.


Place 2-3 large chicken breast pieces in a crock pot with one can of enchilada sauce. That's it! Cook about 4 hours on high (check after about 3 I think my crockpot cooks a little slow) shred meat and let cook another 30 min. until enchilada sauce is absorbed. Perfectly seasoned shredded meat, great for enchiladas too!

Fillings are totally up to you. We like Onion and Bell Pepper sauteed in a little butter. Montery Jack and Pepper Jack Cheese. With a little bit of refried beans.

Take a flour tortilla, we prefer soft taco size, place a thin layer of refried beans on each side. Spray some butter spray or butter flavored cooking spray on the outside of each tortilla. Fill with your favorite fixing and cook in skillet until nice and crispy. Cut into wedges and serve. We like to dip ours in sour cream and salsa.
