Ingredients

  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 ½ cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 avocado sliced in half, then diced
  • 2 TBSP green salsa
  • dash of lime juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • cilantro sour cream and salsa, to top/dip

Instructions

  • Cook each tortilla on a 400 degree F skillet for 30 seconds on each side. Set aside.
  • Combine diced chicken with salsa and lime juice, stir to combine. Add several leaves of cilantro, if desired. (I adore cilantro!) Shake in a little salt and pepper as well.
  • Reduce skillet heat to about 250 degrees F. Place tortilla on the skillet, then 1/2 cup cheese and about 3/4 cup chicken mixture. Top with 1/2 an avocado, then another 1/2 cup cheese and another tortilla. Gently press down to meld quesadilla. Cook for about 3 minutes, then flip over and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let stand 1-2 minutes. Slice into triangles with a pizza cutter and serve with sour cream, salsa and additional cilantro. Makes 2 quesadillas.
