BOB RECIPE:  Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

10 flour tortillas
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 packet Fajita seasoning
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 8-oz package shredded cheddar cheese
1 8-oz package shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 8-oz container sour cream

Cut the chicken into small pieces.  Combine with the fajita seasoning and mix thoroughly.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add chicken and cook until no longer pink inside, approximately 5 minutes.  Stir in green and red bell peppers and onion.  Slowly cook for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Layer half of each tortilla with cheddar cheese and chicken/vegetable mixture.  Top with Monterey Jack cheese.  Fold each tortilla in half to create a “half moon” and press lightly.  Coat a skillet or griddle with cooking spray and warm to medium heat.

Lightly brown each quesadilla for 2-3 minutes per side until cheese is melted.  Cut each quesadilla into three wedges and serve with a dollop of sour cream.  Servings: 10
