Fajita Quesadillas




This is our own creation, perfected over many trials before Kevin entered it into the cooking contest at work.

1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 orange pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
olive oil

Cook the onions and peppers in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. This mixture will make 4 quesadillas.

1/2 package bacon, cooked till crispy and drained - this will also make you 4 quesadillas

We would cook the peppers and bacon ahead of time, save the leftovers to make them more quickly next time.

Then, per quesadilla:
about 3 grilled chicken strips, or 1 smoked mesquite chicken breasts (from Costco - these are small), depending on what flavor you want
1 1/2 c. shredded colby jack cheese
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 uncooked tortillas

Cook 1 side of each tortilla on a griddle. When you flip them over to cook the second side, cover each tortilla with 3/4 c. colby jack cheese and 1/2 c. mozzarella, spreading the cheese all the way up to the edges of the tortilla.

As the cheese melts, cover 1 tortilla with bacon, chicken, then the pepper mixture. When your cheese is completely melted, put the other tortilla on top of it all off and let it melt together a little bit before serving.

The contest keeps getting extended because more people want to participate. I think now it goes until the beginning of May. But we'll let you know if it does!

So, update, this recipe did not win the cooking contest at Kevin's work, though we beg to differ with the results. :)
