Let’s upgrade your quesadilla game! Quesadillas are so delicious with the crispy flour tortilla and melty cheese, however, we are going to make these even better! We are combining two classics of sizzling chicken fajitas and cheesy quesadillas.
First we need to cut our veggies. For this recipe, use red, yellow, and green bell peppers. I love the color the peppers bring to the dish. Next, use white onion and jalapeños for some added heat!
I cut my veggies into long pieces and did the same with my chicken. The thinner the strips the easier it will be to cook and to eat in quesadilla form!
In your cast iron, add a couple of tbsp of olive oil and cook your veggies to about 80% done. Once they are almost cooked, throw in your chicken and seasonings. You can use 1 tbsp each of: Salt, Pepper, Paprika, Chili Powder, Cayenne, Red Pepper Flake, Italian Seasoning, Garlic Powder, and Onion PowderIt is time to get everything nice and sizzling! When everything is cooked, set your cast iron aside and pull out the non-stick.
In the nonstick, melt a little butter, Take your flour tortilla and place into the warmed skillet. Add your shredded cheese, fajita mix, and more cheese!
Serve with sour cream and enjoy!
