  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cheddar or Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 lb cooked fajita chicken breast diced or shredded
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup pico de gallo salsa drained


  • In a skillet over medium heat, add oil. Place a flour tortilla in the skillet. Top with about a 1/2 cup cheese. Add 1/2 of the fajita chicken, red and green bell peppers, and pico de gallo salsa on top of the tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Place the other tortilla on top. After about 2 minutes, or when cheese is starting to melt, with a large spatula, very carefully turn the quesadilla over. Cook for about 1 or 2 minutes until the cheese is melted. Be careful not to let the bottom tortilla burn. Very carefully, with the large spatula, place on a plate. Cut into 4 wedges and serve.
  • Repeat above instructions for second quesadilla.
  • Garnish with sour cream, shredded cheese, and pico de gallo.
