Our family loves this easy Chicken Quesadillas recipe and our favorite part is the variety of dips and toppings we add.

Easy Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

There are so many wonderful traditional Mexican recipes that we love.

I am not sure that this is exactly traditional but we love it anyways.

Our Guacamole recipe is a hit with everyone.

And this fantastic recipe for Smothered Burritos with Red Sauce and Queso recipe will become a family favorite.

Each slice can be totally different from the others just by mixing up the toppings.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or you can use a bag of pre-cooked chicken)
  • Shredded cheese of choice (I used Mexican)
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Butter, Butter spray or Olive oil spray

Toppings (Optional):

  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Chives, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into small square pieces.
  2. Cover the bottom of a frying pan with enough Olive oil to cook chicken.
  3. Cook until thoroughly done, about 30 minutes.
  4. Once chicken is done, put butter or spray the pan with butter spray or olive oil spray so you can ‘toast’ one tortilla.
  5. Add cheese and then chicken on top of the tortilla in the pan, and cover with another tortilla.
  6. Flip the quesadilla and spray the pan again and brown the other tortilla.
  7. Cut with a pizza cutter and top as desired.

I used sour cream and salsa as my toppings.

You can also add chopped chives.

Now that Fall is in the air and the days are getting cooler, Potato and Cheddar Vegetable Soup Recipe makes it’s way onto the weekly menu.

I love simple and flavorful soups and this hearty potato and cheddar vegetable soup recipe is just that.

Loaded with fresh veggies and cheddar cheese, this vegetable soup can be ready to serve in about 30 minutes.

What I love most about this soup is if you don’t have a certain vegetable, substitute for whatever you have in the fridge.

Peppers could be added, spinach and kale as well. This is the recipe that we love, and the boys will actually eat.

Serve with fresh bread and sharp cheddar (or even a jalapeno jack).

smokey ham and lentil pasta salad 5d8b3444558bd - Smokey Ham and Lentil Pasta Salad

A lentil pasta salad may not seem like it should be a staple in your house but trust me when I say it should be.

With smokey ham and three different types of vegetables lentil pasta salad is a healthy side or main dish.

Kids and adults will enjoy it.

Smokey Ham and Lentil Pasta salad is also a great pick for your next potluck.

Just increase the amount of the ingredients as needed.

There is mayonnaise in the dish so it will need to be kept chilled but since it can be served cold it is still a good option for summer picnics.

Smokey Ham And Lentil Pasta Salad Recipe

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

  • 8oz penne pasta, cooked & drained
  • 1/2 lb lentils
  • 1/2 lb ham steak, cubed
  • 1 small broccoli crown, chopped
  • 1 small red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup Italian Dressing
  • 2/3 cup Mayonnaise
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

To prepare the lentils, soak them for 10 minutes (even though the bag says no soaking required).

It will speed up the cooking process.

Remove any that float to the surface, these are more than likely dried up and do not need to be in your finished dish.

Drain the water and start fresh cooking per the bag instructions.

Add a few cubes of ham to the lentils while they cook.

When the lentils are fork tender (be careful not to over cook or they will be mushy), remove from heat and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl- add the dressing and mayonnaise.

Mix well.

Add the pasta, chopped broccoli, diced red pepper, peas, cubed ham and cold lentils.
