Quesadillas Made of Leftovers

Quesadillas are such an easy, satisfying meal.  I rarely think of them but they can usually be whipped up quickly from stuff on hand.  

For these ones we used leftover chicken.  I chopped up the cold chicken.

I added salsa, green onions, frozen corn and black beans and warmed it in a pan.  You can even warm it in the microwave to save dishes.  

I used whole wheat tortillas.  I placed one tortilla in a dry pan (you can spray the pan with cooking spray if you prefer).  Then I added a thin layer of cheese to half the tortilla.  This is marble but Monterey jack is better if you have it.  

Then place a layer of the warm chicken mixture on top of the cheese.

I added some very ripe avocado on top as well, which was nice.  You can also serve it on the side.  Sprinkle a little more cheese over the top, then fold the tortilla in half so it is a closed half-moon.

I slice these into thirds with a pizza cutter and serve with sour cream and salsa on the side.  Add a green salad and there's a pretty easy dinner.  Yum!
