I didn’t know what I was going to fix last night, but I came up with this:


  • flour tortillas
  • pre-cooked chicken
  • refried beans
  • shredded Mexican cheese mix
  • waffle maker–electric kind

Cut the chicken off the bone if it’s on a bone. Cut the icky bits off and give them to the happy dog. Spread refried beans on a flour tortilla, sprinkle with chicken and cheese, top with another tortilla and put in in the waffle maker and cook until there are browned waffle marks on it. Remove and cut into fourths.

I also cut up lettuce and cherry tomatoes and served that on the side. Had salad dressings, enchilada sauce and salsa so folks could have salad or put the veggies on the quesadillas and spice everything up or not as they pleased. Oh, also had some corn tortilla chips for dipping into salsa.

Quite tasty, especially for something knocked together on the fly, and flexible enough to please a variety of tastes. If there had been any vegetarians present, I would have made some quesadillas with just beans and cheese.
