I find Quesadillas to be a bit boring for me. But this one takes the cake!! The fresh corn gives a sweetness mixed with the salty and spicy flavor and you won't be able to get enough... My boys loved the fact that they were mini!
Chipotle Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Mini Quesadillas *Picky Palate
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 30 2 1/2- 3inch round flour tortillas, cut with round cookie or biscuit cutter 2 Cups diced cooked chicken 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce from can (3 if you like spicy) 1/4 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped 1 fresh corn on the cob, kernels removed 1 Cup drained black beans 2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese 2 Cups sour cream 2-3 Tablespoons adobo sauce from can of chipotle peppers
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place tortillas onto a baking rack placed over a baking sheet. Brush tops of each tortilla with oil and bake for 5-7 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Remove and set aside.
2. Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil into large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, chipotle peppers, cilantro, corn and beans until heated through, about 5 minutes.
3. Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese over each bottom tortilla. Spoon a heaping Tablespoon of chicken mixture over cheese layer then sprinkle with a pinch more cheese. Lightly press a tortilla round over top. Repeat this process until chicken and tortillas are used up. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until cheese is melted. Combine sour cream and chipotle in a small bowl. Serve with a cilantro leaf garnished plate and top with chipotle sour cream if desired.
*Depending on what size you cut your tortillas you may need more or less to use all of filling. If you have a house full of non-spicy fans, only use 1 chipotle chili. You'll still get the smoky flavor with less heat*
I'm the mother to three very energetic little boys and a wife to a man who rocks my world!
I decided a long time ago that staying home, with complete 24/7 focus on my family, was the career path for me.
I probably laugh more than I should, yell more than I should, and do not stay put anywhere as long as I should...
We try to make God the center of our home, a guest at at every meal, and a silent listener to every conversation...
We live on Main Street in Crazy Town, USA!!!
President David O. McKay declared: "Motherhood is the greatest potential influence either for good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that first awakens a sense of security, her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world." (Gospel Ideals, p. 452.) President McKay continues: "Motherhood consists of three principal attributes or qualities: namely, (1) the power to bear, (2) the ability to rear, (3) the gift to love. . . This ability and willingness properly to rear children, the gift to love, and eagerness, yes, longing to express it in soul development, make motherhood the noblest office or calling in the world. She who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions deserves the admiration and the plaudits of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, . . . deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God." (Gospel Ideals, pp. 453-54.)
