Deli Chicken, Avocado and Chile Quesadillas

These are so quick and easy to make, and can be varied to your taste. Very tasty, and a different sort of breakfast. 

Follow this link to the recipe:

Deli Chicken, Avocado and Chile Quesadillas
  • 4 tortillas, 8’ – 10”
  • 3 ounces (3/4 cup) or more grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 large avocado,sliced
  • 1/2  pound of thinly sliced chicken from the deli
  • 1 small can whole green chiles
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2Tbsp chopped cilantro

Night before:
Set the oven to preheat to 500 degrees

Next morning:
Lay 4 tortillas flat on cookie sheet
Divide ingredients evenly among the 4 tortillas, putting on only ½ of each tortilla
Fold the other half over, making a half moon shape.  Make sure quesadillas don't overlap one another.
Put cookie sheet into oven for 3 minutes, take out and turn tortillas over, the put in over for another 3 minutes.
Ingredients should be bubbling, and tortillas browned.

  • I pan fried the ones that are pictured in a large non-stick skillet with a bit of oil, as an alternative to the oven.  A cooler alternative for the summer, and if you are making only 2, it is faster.
  • Ham or roast beef would work well in these too.
  • Salsa verde is a nice change in these.
