One day last week all of a sudden it was five o'clock and i found myself without a plan.
Now, understand that i almost always have a plan when it comes to food,
so this was a bit of a rare occurrence, and i was somewhat at a loss.
But then i spied the chicken leftover from the night before, and i knew exactly what i had to do,
make quesadilla's!

Quesadilla's are super easy, can be made with any leftover meat/seafood you happen to have,
and are something i almost always have everything for.

Simply take your tortilla, layer up your meat, any veggies you like, and lots of cheese,
fold in half and bake in the oven or fry in a lightly oiled pan until crisp and golden, and cheese is melty and gooey.

I like to use caramelized onions, corn, red peppers and pickled jalapenos with chicken,
but the sky's the limit here, put in whatever you like!
How about leftover turkey, cranberry sauce and brie?  (is it horrible that i am thinking of thanksgiving already?)
Or shrimp, tomato, onion, cilantro, and mango salsa?
Or my fav, leftover bbq'ed steak, caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms with cheddar!
Top with sour cream, salsa, and guacamole, and life is good indeed : )
