Step-by-step recipe quesadillas
Chicken fillet lightly beat off on both sides, flavor (salt, black, red ground pepper).
Fry the fillets in the pan in vegetable oil until Golden brown and tender, 7 minutes on each side. To postpone fillet, allow to cool.
Red and yellow peppers, cut into cubes, onion – half rings.
Fry the onions in a skillet in vegetable oil for 5-6 minutes over high heat, mixing. Add to the pan red with yellow peppers, salt, sauté until soft over average heat, stirring occasionally.
Cheese to grate on a coarse grater.
The cooled chicken fillet, cut into large cubes. On the tortilla spread 1/4 of the grated cheese, 1/2 diced chicken, 1/2 fried onions and peppers, sprinkle another 1/4 of the grated cheese. (Thus, used half of the prepared ingredients). On top you can sprinkle chopped herbs to taste.
Heat a dry skillet on medium-low heat, lightly grease with vegetable oil. Carefully transfer the tortilla with filling into the pan. When the cheese is melted, about halfway, cover the top with a second tortilla and gently press with your hands or a spatula so the top tortilla “glued” with melted cheese, but the filling was not out at the edges.
A rapid but careful movement, flip the quesadilla in the pan. You can do this by using two flat blades. To give the bottom tortilla to brown for 3-5 minutes.
Remove the quesadilla from the pan, place on a flat dish and let cool slightly. Cut into 4-6 pieces. Repeat steps 6-9 with the other half of the ingredients. Serve with guacamole sauce.
Cooking guacamole. Avocado crushed with a blender (you can also mash them with a fork), mix with the juice of lemon or lime, salt. You can add finely chopped chili pepper (to taste).
