Chicken Quesadillas

I am always trying to do different things with chicken, because I feel like it can be one of the more boring meats and it's harder to eat leftover for me.  Flipping through recipe ideas I got a craving for quesadillas and remembered that I had a nifty quesadilla maker sitting on a shelf in my garage that was being severely under utilized.  *Don't get discouraged if you do not own a quesadilla maker, you can still make this recipe just fine in a pan on the stove.  This is a very quick and delicious recipe.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp Butter
2 Chicken Breasts (Thinly Sliced)
Seasoning (Alpine Touch, Lime Pepper, Cumin Powder)
Pack of flour tortillas
Shredded Cheese
Toppings (Mix and match in whatever way you desire)
Red Pepper (Seeded & Sliced)
Green Onions (Chopped)
Avocado (Seeded, Peeled & Sliced)
Salsa
Sour Cream
Cilantro

Directions:
 Add the butter to a skillet and place the sliced chicken into the pan, add the seasoning  Cook until down all the way through.  Pre-heat the quesadilla maker (or the pan if you prefer).  Get a tortilla for the bottom of you quesadilla.  Sprinkle shredded cheese on the bottom and top with a couple pieces of the cooked chicken.  Add the accoutrements (peppers, green onions, avocado) and top with a final sprinkle of cheese.  Place on the quesadilla maker (or in the pan on med-high) and add a top tortilla to cover.  Cook for about 30-60 seconds to warm all the way through (if cooking in a pan flip after 30 seconds and cook for another 30, once you start to see melted cheese you should be good to go).  Remove and cut along the grooves made by the quesdilla maker (if using a pan just cut to preference).  Serve with salsa and Sour cream with cilantro on top.  Enjoy!
