What I did with the other half of the chicken.

You may remember from my post the other day that I used part of a rotisserie chicken to make Chicken & Dumplings.  You may not remember.  Hell, you probably didn't even read it.  Whatever.  But, anyhoo, I'm always looking for something good to make, and I love me some quesadillas.

Part of a rotisserie chicken (about half of one), pulled from the bone and chopped
some olive oil, just a bit
one small yellow onion, chopped
any veggies you want to hide from you kids.  I have used carrots, green peppers, mushrooms, squash, zucchini, and broccoli before.  Whatever you have in the fridge that looks like it's drawn its last breath, but that hasn't given up the good fight yet will do.
Shredded mexican cheese (one bag)- if you want to shred it yourself, go for it, but why would you want to?
some spices (about 1/2 teaspoon each salt, cuminchili powder, onion powder) OR a pack of Taco Seasoning Mix
A little bit of water
6 flour tortillas  - makes 3 quesadillas

In a small skillet, heat the oil, then add in the chicken, onions, and any other veggies you have.  Cook it until the onions aren't crunchy any more (just a couple of minutes).  Add in the spices, and just a touch of water to get the spices all blended up.  Cook it for another minute till it is bubbly and delicious.
In a large skillet or on a stovetop griddle (I love mine - it's the best $50 RJ ever spent - and BELIVE ME, he has spent a lot of $50es) lay out the tortillas.  Spread 1/3 of the chicken mixture out onto each tortilla, top with 1/3 of the cheese, and put another tortilla on top.  Repeat.  Repeat.  Cook it until it is starting to brown on one side, then flip it over, and cook the other side.
