Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Black Bean and Chicken Quesadillas

It's no secret that I LOVE Mexican food. So here is yet another addition to my Mexican food list of favorites. I made these yesterday and they were sooooo good and easy to make!

4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, chopped
1 can of organic black beans, rinsed
1/2 c. salsa
1 TBS of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
10 flour tortillas (the large ones)

Cook chicken breasts until done. Chop into bite size chunks and saute' with onion about 5 mins.
In a blender add your black beans, salsa and seasoning. Blend until smooth.
Distribute the bean mixture evenly over 5 tortillas that have been placed on sprayed cookie sheets. I used 3 cookie sheets for these.
Distribute cooked chicken and onions over the beans and then sprinkle with cheese.
Place remaining tortillas over the other 5 and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 mins. or until the tops and edges are slightly brown.
Remove from oven and cut each tortilla into 6ths with a pizza cutter.
Have extra salsa, sour cream, guacamole on hand to eat with your quesadillas.
Serve with a salad and you have a delicious meal!
I know you will love these.
