How to make chicken quesadillas

To make this quesadillas recipe start with cutting the chicken fillet into really small strips. Add two tablespoons of chili powder and two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix well so all chicken is covered with the chili powder seasoning and olive oil before you set it aside.

Heat a skillet with a little olive oil and add the diced bell pepper and onions. Stir continuously to let it go soft and translucent before you set it aside.

Then add the chicken to the pan and stir until golden brown. As the chicken is covered in oil you do not need to add oil to your skillet.

In the meanwhile heat your oven and baking tray at 450℉/220℃. It is important that the baking tray is hot as well so both sides of the quesadilla get baked from the start.

When the oven is hot take out the tray and construct your quesadillas on the baking tray. Put a sheet of parchment on the baking tray.

Then add a flour tortilla and put 2 to 3 tablespoons of chicken to cover half of the tortilla. Then add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the bell pepper mix and black beans.

Lastly sprinkle the grated cheese on the quesadilla and fold the tortilla. You can choose a hard cheese like grated Mozzarella or Gouda for this. To get more flavor you can choose for an older cheese that is more salty in taste.

Repeat and create two more quesadillas. Brush a little bit of oil on the top of the quesadillas and put them in the oven for 8 minutes.
