Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

Chicken Fajita Quesadilla

I honestly think I could eat mexican food everyday, it is my favorite!  And I love making these Chicken Fajita Quesadillas.  They are quick, cheesy, filling and crowd pleasing!  You could easily cut these smaller and serve as appetizers but I like to cut them in wedges and serve with a little sour cream, some pintos and rice and it is an amazing dinner!  Now if I didn’t have the picky eater to please I would throw in a can of corn and black beans but that might cause a riot in my house, so I leave them out.

These quesadillas are the perfect mix of caramelized onions and peppers, taco seasoned grilled chicken and a melty mix of colby and pepperjack cheese that adds just the perfect hint of spice.

These are certainly kid friendly, my picky eaters love them but if your kids don’t go for the peppers and onions you can make theirs with just the chicken and cheese, however, these quesadillas are the perfect vehicle for sneaking some veggies into your kids.  You could easily hide some broccoli in there ;)

So I hope you try these soon!  I promise they are to die for!!

    OK, now I know what I did wrong. I had had some delicious homemade chicken quesadillas at a friend’s house last week. Tried to reproduce it at home and something was seriously missing. Now I know, THE SEASONING MIX!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe on Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. I’m going to feature it on my FB page right now!

    Yum! I will probably do the chicken and eat with spaghetti or rice since we are not taco lovers, I’m sure they will still taste delicious.
