Being in school & making a fresh dinner do not go hand in hand all the time, but last night after coming back from the gym, and, having only a few ingredients on hand, I decided to try out Laura’s chicken quesadilla recipe — and I seriously loved it! It was truly simple, and required NO PREP work!
I do not know Laura, but I love subscribing to her, she has so many great recipes on her YouTube channel! I’ll try to review all the recipes I make, and tell you how I’ve manipulated them.
P.S. Just made this for lunch, except this time I made a little change. I wanted to add black beans in to make it more filling (and so I could add less cheese). In order to do this I took a can of organic black beans which were in water (NO SALT), drained them and then cooked them on medium heat for 5 mins. I seasoned them with garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, & chili flakes (you could use a forth of a packet of taco seasoning). After mixing it all together I placed the contents into my magic blender with 4 tablespoons of salsa and pureed it! Next, I placed 2-3 spoons of the mixture on my tortilla and spread it out with a knife, then placed my chicken and cheese on it & heated it over the stove for 2 mins on each side on medium heat (just make sure the cheese has melted)! Viola — it’s DONE!
I hope you love this quick & healthy addition to the recipe!
