How to make Chicken Quesadilla (Mexican)

  1. Pressure cook chicken with salt, pepper and turmeric for 2 to 3 whistles.
  2. Once done, preserve water for later use and shred the cooked chicken breast pieces.
  3. In a bowl, Mix white onion, green capsicum, red capsicum, yellow capsicum, zucchini, cucumber, salt, pepper, mexican burrito/taco powder, chicken and oregano.
  4. Heat 1 tspn oil in wok and Sauté above mixture.
  5. Add finely chopped coriander leaves, spring onion leaves and mix well.
  6. Switch off the flame and keep aside. Do not over cook.
  7. In small non stick pan, pour some tomato ketchup, red chili powder. Keep stirring till it changes colour.
  8. For sealing the tortilla, Mix 2 tbsp Maida flour and water in a small bowl. This mixture should be thick.
  9. Spread spicy tomato chilli on tortilla, Half top it with the filling and seal the edges with flour mixture.
  10. (Cheese lovers can sprinkle some mozzarella cheese after toping with the filling. I normally don’t use cheese in my recipe)
  11. Heat a non- stick pan, Cook tortilla until golden on both the sides. Cut into half.
  12. Serve hot.

My Tip:

- Always dice vegetables. - For crispy filling taste, Don’t overcook. - If you have overcooked just cook the mixture in high flame so that water is dried. - You can use red chilli sauce but i love using homemade sauce. - Serve immediately for crispy taste
