Chicken, corn & Cheese Quesadillas

  • 8 oz chicken
  • Taco seasoning (or make your own like me with: 1/2 TBSP each: Chili powder, seasoning salt, garlic powder, onion powder)
  • 1/2 14 oz can Fiesta corn (Mexicorn)
  • 1 small bell pepper, chopped
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup fat free shredded cheddar cheese
  • cooking spray
  • Optional: Salsa, sour cream and/or guacamole for dipping.
  1. Preheat a skillet over med-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Sautee the bell pepper until slightly tender.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with taco seasoning mixture and add to the skillet (Add more cooking spray if needed). Cook, turning once (and adding more seasonings if needed), until cooked through. Add corn and heat.
  3. Preheat a griddle to 300.
  4. Sprinkle 4 of the tortillas with 1 TBSP cheese, then top with 1/4 of the chicken mixture. Top with additional 1 TBSP cheese and remaining tortillas.
  5. Spray griddle with cooking spray and place quesadillas on top. Sprinkle the TOP side of the quesadilla with cooking spray as well. Cook for a few minutes on each side (making tortillas crispy), and/or until heated thoroughly.
  6. Cut into wedges and serve with fixings.
