Saucy Chicken Quesadillas

July 9, 2013

Goodbye Yesterday

Everybody has memories they do not like to remember, but the best thing about horrible memories is that they are memories.   Thoughts of the PAST.  How you deal with these memories determines your future and can ruin the present if you let the memories get the better of you.  For some reason Mexican food reminds me that my troubles can go away and there is always silver lining.  Using some leftovers I made these cheesy saucy quesadillas, they tasted wicked.  And for that brief moment I was in no emotional pain and the tears stopped running down my cheeks.  Then my partner smiled at the good food and I forgot I had a bad day.

This recipe was adapted from Asda Magazine (January, 2013).

Saucy Chicken Enchiladas


1 tbsp oil, 200g cooked chicken meat off the bone, 1 red onion (peeled and chopped), 100g drained canned kidney beans, 100g drained canned sweetcorn, tomato and red pepper ragu sauce, 200g cheddar cheese, fresh tortillas, fresh coriander, wedges, guacamole and sour cream to serve.
