Old El Paso® salsa and tortillas provide a simple addition to homemade chicken quesadilla that's ready in 35 minutes. Perfect if you love Mexican cuisine.
tablespoons olive oil
red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
large onion, thinly sliced
cup frozen corn
cups shredded cooked chicken
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (2 oz)
tablespoon finely chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)
tablespoons chopped cilantro
(8-inch) Old El Paso™ flour tortillas
tablespoons Old El Paso™ Salsa
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion and corn; cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until bell pepper and onion is softened. Remove from heat; stir in chicken, cheese, chipotle chile and cilantro.
Brush one side of each tortilla with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. With oiled side down, spread 2 tablespoons salsa onto each of 3 tortillas. Spread about 1 cup of chicken mixture on each tortilla over salsa. Top each with remaining tortillas, oiled side up.
Heat 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook 1 quesadilla at a time 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until tortilla is golden brown and cheese is melted. Cut each quesadilla in half.
The rotisserie chicken sold at almost any grocery store is perfect for this recipe.
Chipotle chiles are smoked, dried jalapeños. They are often sold canned in a vinegary tomato sauce called “adobo.” They can be quite hot, so feel free to adjust the amount used to suite your taste. The one tablespoon of chiles in this recipe gives a medium-hot result.
