Today it's "Freezer Quesadillas" !
So it's May 7th and not the 5th - we can still do Mexican, right? I must admit, I'm not as big of a fan as some of the other members in my family of Mexican foods - and that's probably because I've never been exposed to very good food. I've only been to a few Mexi-American style eateries ---does Taco Bell count? LOL.
But last night I was looking at some of the recipes I got from the forum on 30 Day Gourmet (remember when I shared some of my favorite OAMC cookbooks and sites?) and came across this one. I looked at the date and it was from 2005! Don't ya just loving looking over recipes and seeing how long you've had them? Ok, call me weird. Anyway, I thought I'd share this one with you in honor of Mexi-Month! (Yeah, I made that up!)
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, finely minced
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 cup Thick and chunky salsa
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 teaspoon chili powder
8 Flour tortillas; 6 inches round
In a mixing bowl, mix chicken, sour cream, salsa, cheeses and chili powder
Place chicken mixture in a quart-sized freezer or storage bag. Seal. Place quart-sized freezer bag inside of a gallon sized freezer bag. Add the tortillas to the bag. Seal, label and freeze.
Thaw contents of the quesadilla kit. Remove the tortillas and separate. Lay out on a flat surface, such as a clean counter, and divide the filling evenly between the tortillas. Fold each tortilla in half. Spray a frying pan with cooking spray. Cook the quesadillas one at a time in the pan. Lightly browning them on each side. The cheese in the filling should melt. After each one is done, remove it from the pan. Using a pizza cutter, cut each quesadilla into three pieces.
