Easy Chicken Quesadillas

Whether you're a food snob or not (my degree in Culinary Arts hasn't stopped me, yet), on a tight budget or have plenty of money, Aldi is worth a look. Here's a recipe I make all the time with ingredients purchased at Aldi.

Hands-On Time: 30 minutes
Ready In: 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings


    3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 packet taco seasoning
    12 flour tortillas
    1 c. each shredded cheddar cheese and shredded Monterey Jack cheese*


  1. Place chicken in large skillet and cover with water.
  2. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer, cooking until chicken is falling apart and most liquid is absorbed.
  3. Shred chicken well.
  4. Sprinkle seasoning packet over the chicken and mix well.
  5. Place approximately 1/4 cup of chicken on one tortilla; spread to edges.
  6. Top with cheese to taste -- about 1/3 cup.
  7. Top with another tortilla.
  8. Heat -- turning once -- in a large non-stick pan on medium-high heat until well browned on both sides and cheese is melted.

*Ingredient Tips
Use more of less cheese, depending on your taste. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and sliced black olives.
