I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Quesadilla Bar

This would be a great dinner to make with the kids. Your children will love the idea that they can pick what goes in their own quesadilla and love putting it together.



QUESADILLA BAR (serves 5)

Ingredients:
(choose what following ingredients you want to use)
*1 pound skinless, boneless, chicken breast, cooked and chopped (I like to marinate my chicken for a few hours before cooking)
*1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
*1 green pepper, chopped & cooked
*1 red pepper, chopped & cooked
*1/2 yellow onion, sliced & cooked
*1 cup mushrooms, chopped & cooked
*2 or 3 peperoncini's, chopped
*1 tomato, seeded & chopped small
*5 to 10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
*1 (12 ounce) Colby & Monterey Jack shredded cheese
*sour cream

Directions:
~Preheat griddle (or large frying pan) to medium heat.
~Fill tortilla with desired ingredients put cheese last.
~Butter one side of tortilla.
~Place on griddle butter side down.
~Place another buttered tortilla on top of meat & veggie mixture, buttered side up.
~Cook until tortilla is golden brown, and then flip until other side is golden brown.
~Serve hot, top with sour cream if desired.

Variation:
`I use one tortilla and fold it in half as shown in the above picture.
`Marinated steak instead of chicken


Helpful Hint: Do all your chopping and cooking ahead of time and put your ingredients in separate bowls. This makes it's easier if you are letting young children make their own quesadilla. Set all the bowls up on the table and let them go at it.
