Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 lb (500 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 pkg Old El Paso* Smart Fiesta* Reduced Sodium Fajita Seasoning Mix

  • Old El Paso* Thick N' Chunky Salsa (optional)
  • Reduced Fat or Fat Free Sour Cream (optional)

    Evenly divide chicken mixture over half of each tortilla. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup (50 mL) shredded cheese; fold over to make half-moon shape, pressing lightly.

    Cook quesadillas in an ungreased, nonstick skillet 3 to 4 minutes per side or until tortilla is browned and crisp and filling is hot. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa and sour cream for dipping, if desired.
