I love to cook. And I experiment cook just about every time. So no one recipe is the same. I figure I would try to write what I do down. I really don’t care if you take it and get famous off of it..lol.
One thing I love to make is …tacos. Like ..a lot!! My mom makes the best tacos. At least, the best home made soft shells I have ever had! I am still trying to get that recipe down. So I cannot share that with you yet. But, in my love for all things mexican, I have experimented with other dishes. SO my first recipe will be about quesadillas. A recipe the whole family loves.
I may add more recipes to this one. Keeping all the recipes together on this one blog. So feel free to browse back from time to time.
It really depends on how much beef you are making. As well as how much of each seasoning you like. This is for about 5 pound of meat. Easily a table spoon of each.(or less depending on how spicy you like it.)
- Chili powder
- (This can be to taste. If you add cayenne you may not want to add too much if at all)
- (Again, this too can be to taste depending on how spicy. Other spices like a 5 pepper spice I have used as well)
- (Any green herb like basil or parsley I have used just depending on preference)
Po’Man Chicken Quesadilla
Now I have been in a bind a few times, and I know buying chicken can get pricey. SO, I have learned to improvise a bit. Canned chicken (which may be a little cheaper) may not taste as good as fresh chicken but, when doctored up..not too bad.
I take the canned chicken drain the water. Fry it up in the pan. I dice up a small onion, a bell pepper..red or green or both, saute them up in butter. After the veggies are slightly softened I mix with the chicken.
Bacon-fry up chop then add into chicken mix. Put on low heat to stay warm.
NOTE: An optional add..is One can of black beans.
Use a bigger pan for frying. Turn heat to medium heat. Spray the pan with olive oil spray, take a large soft shell place on sprayed pan. Add the chicken/veggie/bacon mixture to the shell. spread around to the edge of shell. Add Sharp Cheddar cheese(enough to cover most of the mixture. Then add the top shell. Spray top shell with olive oil spray.
Fry approximately 1 -2 minutes on one side and about a minute on other side.
Remove from skillet and slice up into slices
Additional Sauces for dipping
- Sour cream
And there you have it. My easy chicken quesadilla
