Chicken Quesadillas. Mexican Cuisine!

Honestly, after making these (using my own made tortillas) i am hooked on Mexican Food. They are so tasty, and i only need a couple of slices to be full.

I highly recommend/insist that you make your own tortillas, you can freeze some and make more tasty dishes later. The difference is incomparable, they also great reheated next day. I love mine with a sour cream and guacamole (takes 5 minuets to make), as all the flavors mix really well.

I will be giving the recipe for tortillas in my other post.

Ingredients:

Tortillas-this recipe is for 4 quesadillas and you will need respectively 8 tortillas.

Chicken breast- 2 pieces, cut in strips.

Yellow capsicum- 2 cut in strips.

Onion- 1 large, cut in half rings.

Cheese- i am using cheddar-200g + (depending on your taste) grated.

Fajita spice mix or any other chili spice mix.

Butter -50 g

Olive oil.

Directions:

Mix chicken strips with your spices and set side for few minuets.

Heat an oil in a pan and fry chicken till nice and cooked.Set aside.

Rinse and dry the pan, heat an oil and fry onions and capsicum till slightly golden, do not overcook, should take less than 5 minuets.

Add chicken, mix all together for a minuet, set aside.

Heat Β butter 1/4 in a pan, lay down one tortilla, cover it with chicken mixture and put a layer of cheese on top (make sure cheese is distributed evenly as it will help the tortilla on top stick properly).Put second tortilla on top and press slightly with spatula or hands.

Cook until the bottom tortilla is nice and crispy, than carefully turn it over, you can turn it with a spatula or put a plate over, flip and slide tortilla to a pan. If you are flipping be aware of dripping oil. Cook on the other side till nice and crispy as well. Now you will definitely need to flip it with a plate.

Repeat the process with the rest of quesadillas.

I like to cut them in 4 slices on a cake stand using a bread knife.

      Thank you, but the secret ingredient is a home made tortilla. It will not come out as nice with a store bought version.πŸ˜€

        I believe you, but still want to go, it’s just so far from Australia…what countries would you recommend?

        In Latin America ? I only went to Costa rica (3 months) and Nicaragua (1 week) so I can’t really speak for the others. But both are great, so many things to see (beaches, park, volcan, etc). But next year I’ll maybe go to Mexico for an internship and I know a lot of people who lived there and they all loved it ! I will recommend one this 3 but I also heard that Guatemala and Panama were crazy too πŸ™‚
