Chicken Quesadillas

Cheesy_Chicken_Quesadillas-2My husband loves to make these, and we all love to eat them. Make them fancy for the adults by adding extra heat, or keep it simple for the kids. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa.

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 (1.27 ounce) packet fajita seasoning
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 green bell peppers, chopped
2 red bell peppers, chopped
1 onion, chopped
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1 (8 ounce) package shredded
Cheddar cheese
1 (8 ounce) package shredded
Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat the broiler.
Cut the chicken into small cubes and prepare with the fajita seasoning mix. Broil 5 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink on the inside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix in the seasoned chicken, green bell peppers, red bell peppers and onion. Slowly cook and stir 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Layer 1/2 of each tortilla with Cheddar cheese, chicken mixture and desired amount of bacon bits. Top with Monterey Jack. Fold the tortillas.
Bake in the preheated oven 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
