This week’s new recipe isn’t completely new, but different than I would normally make it. Using grocery items I got with coupons and sales, this whole meal was pretty cheap to make.
I also got to use the new griddle I got for Christmas. I just got it out of the box this weekend and have already used it twice. I don’t know why it took so long to open. Sometimes I procrastinate. Anyway, to make the chicken quesadillas, I used flour tortillas (sprayed with cooking spray so they wouldn’t stick to the griddle) and filled them with southwestern style chicken breast strips, shredded cheese, and diced green peppers.
Then just top it with another cooking-sprayed flour tortilla and flip when the first side is brown. Just be careful not to spray the counter with the chicken and cheese filling…it might if you flip too fast. You know, not that I know from experience, I’m just saying, be careful.
I also threw together some Spanish rice to go with the chicken quesadillas. I just made the quick cooking rice following the instructions on the box, added some left over corn, salsa, salt, and pepper. A quick and easy side that Chris and Elliott both scarfed down rather quickly.
Yummy, cheap, and easy…a definite dinner winner (oh, how I love to rhyme).
