Recipe: Chicken Quesadillas

I found this recipe on the side of McCormick's Crushed Red Pepper shaker. To say I was desperate for a new recipe is an understatement. But this is a MUST TRY!!

It's simple, tasty, and you can make it ahead of time, which is great for a busy mommy.

corn tortillas
3 chicken breasts
1T of olive oil
1/4 c chopped green onion
1 chopped tomato
1/2 t of the following: crushed red pepper, thyme leaves, allspice
2 c shredded monterey jack cheese

Saute chicken in olive oil on medium low heat. Turning about every 5 minutes until done.
Combine green onion, tomato and spices in a bowl.
After chicken is completely cooked and cooled. Chop into small pieces. Combine with spices.
Place tortilla in pan on medium low heat. Add chicken mixture and cheese and cover with another tortilla. 
Flip over quesadilla after about 4 minutes or golden brown.

I like monterey jack cheese, but feel free to use whatever kind you enjoy!!
