You Can Make These Tasty Chicken Quesadillas In Just 10 Minutes

Ingredients
  • Smoked chicken (normal chicken works, too)
  • 1 Red pepper
  • Coriander
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Flour tortillas
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Sour cream

Instructions

Step 1

The ingredients are all easy to find. Please make the effort and get the smoked chicken; you'll find it somewhere.

r2
Step 2

Chop the flesh away from the pepper.

r3
Step 3

Cut it up into nice thin slices.

r4
Step 4

Put a small pot on the heat with a good lashing of olive oil.

r5
Step 5

Start cooking the pepper. Have this on a nice slow flame and they'll take about 10 minutes.

r6
Step 6

Get the smoked chicken out. Leave the skin on because it makes it extra tasty.

r7
Step 7

Chop it up into nice big chunks.

r8
Step 8

Keep the peppers moving every couple of minutes. We are trying to make them nice and sweet by cooking them slowly rather than burning them.

r9
Step 9

Grab a few Jalapenos out of the jar. You can leave these out if you can't stand the heat, but they really make the dish.

r10
Step 10

Chop them up; seeds and all.

r11
Step 11

Grab a good handful of coriander.

r12
Step 12

Chop it until it's nice and fine.

r13
Step 13

Grab some cheddar and grate it. If you're super lazy, grab the pre-grated stuff.

r14
Step 14

And that's your prep done. No more chopping.

r15
Step 15

The peppers should be soft and tender at this stage.

r16
Step 16

Grab them off the heat and we're ready to start making the bad boy Quesadillas.

r17
Step 17

Grab a big frying pan. Biggest one you have. Get some oil in there; but not too much.

r18
Step 18

Chuck in the flour tortilla.

r19
Step 19

Have the heat down nice and low. More or less as low as you can get it.

r20
Step 20

When it starts feeling warm to the touch throw in the cheese. Sprinkle it so it covers the surface evenly.

r21
Step 21

Throw in a generous amount of coriander.

r22
Step 22

Get the chicken in. It's already cooked, so no need to worry about cooking it through.

r23
Step 23

Throw in your lovely sweet peppers and the jalapenos.

r24
Step 24

After a couple of minutes when the cheese is melting have a look to make sure the bottom isn't burning.

r25
Step 25

Now it's time to flip it. Use a fish slice (the thing you use to fry eggs) and gently fold it in half.

r26
Step 26

Pat it down and make sure the filling stays inside.

r27
Step 27

Flip it a couple of times and make sure it's nice and golden brown on both sides. If you are making a few, keep them warm in the oven.

r28
Step 28

Get them out of the pan and serve immediately.

r29
Step 29

Cut them in half to make the presentation look on point.

r30
Step 30

Chuck on a good dollop of the sour cream. This helps cool the chilli kick.

r31

And there you go. BOOM. Unbelievable taste. Seven Ingredients and ready in 10 minutes.
