Waffle Maker Chicken Quesadilla

I was watching Ree Drummond’s show called “Waste Not Want Not” and got to thinking what I could do with leftover chicken. This waffle maker quesadilla is a great way to use leftover chicken along with other vegetables that are getting past their prime. I’m leaving out the heat as my gang thinks a mild salsa is spicy. But you can add about anything to these. I’m hungry just thinking about it. Serves 1


2 corn or flour tortillas
Shredded or cut up chicken enough to layer on tortilla
1/2 green pepper, cleaned, seeded and chopped
Onion, chopped (amount depends on taste)
1/2 tomato, diced, divided
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, or any cheese that you like
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
Sour cream
Non stick cooking spray


Heat the waffle iron. Spray with the nonstick spray. Place a tortilla on waffle maker. Add chicken, green pepper, onion, tomatoes and cheese. Put the other tortilla on top. Close the waffle maker. Cook 2-3 minutes or until tortilla is lightly brown and cheese has melted. Remove and cut in quarters. Serve along with sour cream, salsa, shredded lettuce and the remaining diced tomatoes. Yum Yum!

 PS: if you feel your vegetables are to crunchy and prefer them softer. Precook them in a skillet with a little olive oil for 3-4 minutes or until desired tenderness.
