Buen Provecho chicken quesadillas!

I wasn't going to do this, I really wasn't. But I just can't help myself! So, no more promises to get off the food channel! We have to eat every day, and I really do enjoy cooking, so I'll probably put at least one recipe a week on here!

I saw this recipe on www.recipes.com under "cooking light" and it looked so good I had to try it. I did make a few slight modifications, so I'll give you my version:

1) grill 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts. (It was raining, so I used my George Foreman). Shred or slice when cooked.

2) In frying pan, heat about 1 Tbsp. olive oil; add about 1 cup sliced onions and about 1 cup sliced mushrooms. Add about 1 tsp. crushed garlic or sprinkle on garlic powder, and salt & pepper to taste. Add about a Tbsp. of red wine vinegar. Cook and stir with wooden spoon until soft, about 5 minutes.

3) on griddle, place tortillas and begin heating. (I used whole wheat, which have 3 grams of fiber each!) Spoon mushroom mixture on 1/2 of tortilla.

4) Add some chicken slices, and some cheese. (I used soft goat cheese, but I think anything would work!)

5) Add a mixture of argula and spinach.

6) Carefully fold over tortillas...place a plate over them to hold them down. After they cook a minute, carefully flip them over and cook another minute on the other side.

7) Serve with salsa and/or sour cream.

(This uses about 6 regular sized tortillas.)

Thanks Wanda! This was really good and wasn't spicey or high fat like your normal Mexican style food!

MMMMMMMM! I can taste it as I read it. I just got back from the grocery store and actually have everything I'd need to make these except goat cheese - but I have some shredded cheese I'll use (got it last week 1/2 off).

Whole wheat tortillas keep us going here! Meijer has them 8 for $1.59. I'm holding my breath that they don't raise price to match other brands! My hubby often spreads peanut butter on one with a few raisins and rolls it up to eat for an evening snack. It IS good.

oooo! the peanut butter & raisins sound good...why couldn't you roll them up and slice them like pinwheels...I wonder if I could get the kids to snack on those? Sounds yummy!

YUMMMMMM!!!! Now I KNOW I'll be trying this one Jacquelyn.
I'll probably replace the cheese with black beans. I try to fool myself into thinking they are just as good as 'cheese'.
Keep up the recipes - I'm enjoying this.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
