I think everyone has days where they simply don’t have the time or energy to cook a big meal, but they still want to set something on the table for the family that does not involve a take-out menu and a telephone. Fajita Quesadillas are the perfect meal for a night like that, whether it was a chaotic work day or a fun-filled weekend…supper is ready!
Today the Sunday Supper team is teaming up with McCormick to bring you quick and delicious recipes featuring McCormick’s new Skillet Sauces. The Skillet Sauces come in 7 different varieties to choose from. Each variation includes a recipe using basic ingredients and the pouch has everything you need to create a sizzling skillet of flavor to satisfy the family!
I will be using the Fajita with roasted chili, garlic & lime to make you these simply delicious quesadillas.
To begin, cut a red bell pepper and medium onion into strips.
Cut a pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts into thin strips.
In a large skillet, heat a tablespoon of coconut oil over medium high heat and toss in the chicken strips. Cook until the chicken begins to get golden around the edges, turn it over and cook on the other side. This will take about 8 minutes, depending on the heat.
Toss in the onion & pepper strips and cook for 3 minutes.
Pour in the contents of the McCormick skillet sauce packet.
Reduce the heat to low, stir and simmer for about 3 minutes or until the onion & pepper are just tender.
Spoon some of the chicken mixture onto a flour tortilla. Top with shredded colby-jack cheese and some guacamole. Now you can serve these just like this as a fajita, but I love a crispy tortilla so I added the step of turning this into a quesadilla.
Fold the tortilla over and place it in a panini press. Cook it in the press for 1-2 minutes or until the tortilla is crisped and golden.
Cut into wedges and serve with some sour cream.
McCormick has been bringing flavor to the table for nearly 125 years, so who better to bring you the seasoning blends that you need to make your quick supper…super!?
