Easy Recipe for Chicken Quesadillas

This recipe seems easy enough. I found it at Simple and Delicious and the total prep and cook time is approx. 30 minutes. If your not thrilled with the idea of using "spicy" tomatoes, I'd try using regular diced tomatoes and a package of taco seasoning.

Ultimate Chicken Quesadillas
Cheesy quesadillas filled with a mixture of tender chicken and spicy tomatoes;

No-Stick Cooking Spray
1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 can (10 oz each) Ro*Tel Mexican Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice & Cilantro, undrained
1 cup shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese blend

Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add chicken and undrained tomatoes; cook 10 minutes or until chicken pieces are no longer pink in centers and liquid is evaporated, stirring frequently.
Spread chicken mixture evenly onto bottom half of each tortilla to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over chicken mixture on each tortilla. Fold each tortilla in half to cover filling.
Clean skillet. Spray with additional cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook quesadillas 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Cut into wedges to serve.

I also found this recipe at All Recipes for Churros if you want to make it a Mexican dinner night.


1 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 quarts oil for frying
1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.
Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

I also found another recipe using a can of flaky rolls at RecipeZaar, click here Easy Churros, to check out that recipe.

I spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday working in the yard. Getting the gardens cleaned out and ready for planting and putting a lot of mulch out. The weather was absolutely beautiful and, as a matter of fact, my back was even sunburned. I can't wait for it to warm up a wee bit more and stay there so I can begin planting flowers and veggies.

I'm so excited. I'm waiting for my petunias to arrive (I wrote about winning them last October) from entering an online contest. I wonder if I saved that email because it looks like I should be receiving another confirmation before they ship out the flowers.

The main thing I have left to do in the gardens, besides planting, is getting some more cow manure and top soil to mix into the vegetable garden. I also need to buy some stakes and chicken wire. I want to put the chicken wire up in the back of the garden for cucumber and beans to grow up. Last year I had vines growing all over the place and I want to see if it will be better growing up the wire.

I've never had any luck growing pumpkins, but maybe I'll give Rylie her own little patch so she can try growing her own pumpkin for Halloween. I think she'd really enjoy it. She's always wanting to help me in the yard with the gardens. She has her own little shovel and I have to keep a close eye on her or she'll just start digging my stuff up and say something like "look mom, I'm your helper." LOL

Well, have a great week.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
