wicked fast, wicked good

Last night, after a long day at the office, I thought my mom was going to cook supper. She would have, if I'd suggested something to make. Since I didn't, she didn't. It was already 6 p.m. by the time I realized that there was no food forthcoming. Thankfully, I'd been preparing for that moment, figuring out how to cook various things without having to even look at a recipe. Ironically, I'm going to write down what I did, creating a recipe. It's so easy though that you can memorize it. I think it's similar to something I've made in the past but even easier. I had dinner on the table by 6:30 even though I started with frozen chicken. Thank goodness for microwaves.

Chicken Quesadillas.

2 chicken breasts cut into pieces
8 tortillas (you could easily use more or fewer)
2 tblspn flour
1 tspn cumin
A pinch of chili powder
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 cup shredded cheese
1 can refried beans
2 tblspn buter
2 tblspn oil.
Optional: salsa and sour cream

Put the flour, cumin and chili powder in a ziplock back to mix. Add chicken and shake.
Heat oil and butter in pan. Add garlic, sautee for 1 minute. Add chicken. Cook until it's done.

Put tortilla in a pan, spoon on desired amount of refried beans. Add chicken. Add cheese. Top with another tortilla. Heat until cheese melts. Turn. Leave on burner just long enough for top tortilla to get crisp.

Take quesadilla of burner and cut into pieces like a pie. Serve with rice. Would also be good with salsa and sour cream if you have it. Eat. Enjoy.
