Mexican Night

I have been hooked on quesadillas lately. I have tried ordering them a few different restaurants, but it seems like they always surprise me with onions or the chicken is weird, so I think it's better to just make them at home. This recipe came from and it's very tasty.

Fiesta Chicken Quesadilla

4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
Cooking spray
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup thin red bell pepper strips
1/4 cup thin green bell pepper strips
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
1 tablespoon sliced green onion (1 medium)
1/2 cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa

Heat oven to 450°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Spray both sides of each tortilla lightly with cooking spray. Place 2 tortillas on foil-lined pan. Sprinkle each with half of the chicken, bell pepper strips, cheese and green onion. Top with remaining 2 tortillas.

Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until light brown and crisp. Cut into wedges; serve with salsa.

Notes: I changed up the recipe a little bit and omitted the green peppers and I subbed taco sauce for the salsa and put the taco sauce in the quesadilla. It also tastes much better if you omit the cooking spray and just cook the quesadilla in a skillet on the stove. The oven turns the top tortilla shell very hard.
