Recipe: Quesadillas from Leftovers
Leftovers- are the ultimate- “What goes around- comes around again” story! Let’s take some leftovers and make a delicious meal- J makes quesadillas from various leftovers – could mention the different ingredients that could be used – Chicken, Steak, Pulled Pork. Add fresh or leftover vegetables, cilantro (or other seasonings) and cheese.
The Quesadilla Concept is a great vehicle for using up leftovers… I simple warm up a few tortillas- and add just about anything- with some cheese- to the inside of the Tortilla- grill it on both sides… and voila- a left over- comes around again as a delicious entrée.
Start with “left over” Chicken Fajita Meat – (here’s my recipe for my Signature Chicken Fajitas) – or any other left overs- like beef or pork roast- and heat them on the stove- with the left overs from the chicken fajitas – I have peppers and onions too… if you don’t have those- you can quickly chop some up and stir fry them- and add the left over meat to season everything.
Place the heated mixture on one side of a Tortilla- and then cover with shredded cheese and fresh cilantro- and fold over!
Heat the tortilla- with mixture inside in a hot pan- until each side is lightly browned and heated through…
Remove from heat- cut into triangles- and serve with more Fresh Cilantro, Lime Wedges and Sour Cream…
What goes around comes around- and it’s a great way to create a #RecipeInBloom for your leftovers!
