Linda M --- Chicken Quesadillas

This recipe has an impressive look and taste with little preparation. The leftover chicken gets Mexican flair from cumin in this fun main dish.

2                tablespoons oil
1/4            cup chopped onions
1               small minced garlic clove
1/4            cup chopped bell peppers
2               minced chili peppers (to taste)
3               chopped plum tomatoes
Oil for frying
8               flour tortillas
2               cup shredded cheddar cheese
1-1/2        cup cooked chicken
Sour cream

1 .   In a medium heavy skillet sautĂ© the onions, garlic, and peppers in the 2 tablespoons  oil until soft. Add the chili peppers and tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes more. Add the chicken and stir well to combine. 
2 .   Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy medium sized pan over medium low heat. 
3 .   Place a tortilla in the pan and sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. Add about 1/4 of the chicken mixture and top with another 1/4 cup cheese. 
Cover with another tortilla and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
4 .   Flip the quesadilla over and cook for an additional two minutes. Remove from the heat and cut into wedges. 

5 .   Keep warm while frying the remaining quesadillas. Serve with salsa and sour cream
