quesadillas

Since Tech Guy (dh) comes home for lunch every day, I've racked my brain for new yet simple ideas. Pretty much what I've come up with is that lunch is usually a take on sandwiches, which may include wraps, quesadillas, burgers, burritos, etc. One of the fastest and easiest favorites is chicken quesadillas... If you're in the same rut I am, this one's for you! All measurements are approximate, I just dump and pour:

6 medium chicken breasts
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can green chilies
1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese
6 tortillas (any flavor)

Cube chicken and fry in olive oil, add spices and cook until done. Add green chilies and heat through. Place tortillas on hot griddle, add 1/2 to 1 cup meat mixture and 1/4 cheese and fold in half. Turn when golden brown on the bottom. Cut into 3 wedges each and serve with sour cream and salsa.

  1. I love your header - how did you do that/who did it for you? I'd love to know!

    I'll have to try your quesadillas --- my husband loves them and I am in a serious food rut.

    And because I read your previous post but tend to never find new comments on old posts in my own world, I wanted to tell you motherhood is a struggle. For us all. The raw intensity you posted shows your frustration with yourself. This will pass! Before you know it...I am transitioning from having my oldest - twins - home all day every day to just having two left at home and even that has thrown me into the realization that golly, it really doesn't last forever. And boy, isn't it easier said than done to 'not take each moment for granted,' right? It's never ending. The laundry, as your title suggests, the meals, the endless clean up after clean up. I encourage you to buy or borrow the book Passionate Housewives Desperate for God. Some of it is over the top. But the jist of it is: our husbands have a job. And so do we. We're raising the future. And we need to set our hearts and attitudes right to ensure the course for our families. At least to the best of our ability and to the extent that they, too, have free will!

    In his morning show Sunday, I heard John Tesh say:
    write two blogs and call me in the morning. Blogging is therapeutic. I can tell you I have been there myself! And may again. I pray that your valley is shallow and that you quickly climb back up to see the view for all the glory that it has.

    God Bless.
