KellysKorner Favorite Recipes

Thursday, September 17, 2009

This week at KellysKorner, we are doing favorite recipes! I hope I get some good ideas:) So this recipe below is pretty much the best quesadillas I have ever had! They are different to and I so wouldn't have thought I would like them as much as I did. They just taste so good!

Monterrey Chicken Quesadillas

  • 1/2 lb. shredded or diced cooked chicken (I used one large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked in the oven)
  • 3/4 c. barbecue sauce (bottled or homemade)
  • 1/2 lb. bacon
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 c. shredded cheese (I use Monterrey Jack, but anything would work)
  • 6 burrito-sized flour tortillas
  • Butter

1. Combine chicken and barbecue sauce. Set aside.

2. Dice the bacon and add to a small skillet. Cook until desired crispness. Remove bacon from skillet with a slotted spoon to drain.

3. Add the sliced onion to the bacon grease in the skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes, until fully cooked. Remove onions with a slotted spoon and drain.

4. Build quesadillas – on a tortilla layer cheese, chicken, bacon, onion, more cheese and top with a second tortilla.
