Southwestern Chicken, Bean, and Sharp Cheddar Quesadilla AND Giveaway Winner

I decided to combine the last little bit of stuffing I made for the Southwestern Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with some refried beans, extra sharp cheddar, and corn tortillas together for a tasty quesadilla. The combination of chicken, corn, cilantro, tomatoes, spinach, green onions, spices, corn tortillas, sharp cheddar, and beans was fantastic – I loved the flavors and textures of this quesadilla. This recipe was the perfect way to use up my leftovers – quick and simple too!

Heat a skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat.

Layer the corn tortillas with refried beans, Southwestern chicken stuffing, and sharp cheddar cheese. Place the other tortilla on top.

Place in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully flip the quesadilla over and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the skillet and let the quesadilla cool for a few minutes before slicing into four equal pieces. Serve with sour cream or salsa. Enjoy.
