Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

If you are in need of an easy Cinco de Mayo recipe then here you go! This was kid friendly and really easy to throw together.  I made them on one of our crazy nights when A had a later baseball practice and we were all eating at separate times. I cooked up the chicken, peppers and onions in the afternoon then threw together the quesadillas when it was time for each person to eat. This recipe is adapted from Jo Cooks.

1/4 cup olive oil
1 pkg fajita mix
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 bell peppers
2 onions
1 cup jack cheese
sour cream
8 tortillas

Chop onions, bell pepper and chicken breasts into long strips and place into a bowl. Mix together the olive oil and fajita mix then pour over the chicken, onions and peppers. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 30 minutes. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the chicken, onions and peppers and saute until cooked through. Once everything is cooked begin to build the quesadillas. Melt 1/2 tbsp of butter in a skillet then place the tortilla down. Layer the cheese, onions, peppers and chicken the fold in half. Let cook until the tortilla begins to brown then add more butter and flip. Continue with the remaining quesadillas then serve with salsa and sour cream.
