Crockpot Chicken Quesadillas
2 Large Chicken breasts
1 ½ to 2 Tablespoons Fajita Seasoning
1 to 2 cups of water
1 package of Large tortillas
2-3 Tablespoons butter
Cheeses of your choice: Quesadilla (I’m cheap and just use regular cheese), Cheddar, Mozzerela, Mexican
Toppings of your choice: mushrooms, green onions, tomatoes, peppers, etc.
Sides of your choosing: sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, etc.
Griddle or large frying pan
Tiles, foil wrapped brick, or heavy frying pan
Place 1 cup of water and fajita seasoning in crockpot. Stir. Place Chicken in crockpot. Add more water if chicken is not surrounded. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 6-8 hours. This will make your house smell wonderful!
Once chicken is fully cooked. Take it out and place it on a cutting board. Using two forks (one to hold chicken and one to shred) shred all the chicken.
Start heating griddle or frying pan. Spread out 3 tortillas. Put cheese, chicken and all fillings ending with cheese again on one side of tortilla. Fold over.
Put a small amount of butter on each spot where a quesadilla will go on the griddle. I used 2 tablespoons total for 9 quesadillas. This gives it a nice browning and crispiness.
Place 3 quesadillas on the griddle. Use something heavy to push down on the quesadillas. I used three tiles that I have as trivets (see above picture on griddle). You could use a foil wrapped brick, a frying pan anything clean, heavy and safe for food preparation. Let it cook for 2 minutes. Put down another small amount of butter for the other side of each quesadilla. Cook for 2 minutes.
While you wait, form an assembly line of another 3 tortillas and start again (see mine above). Cut into triangles for all to enjoy!
This is a delicious meal that is very easy to prepare. This is also a nice appetizer or something to take to a friend! Enjoy!
