All You Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas
Leftovers in our house are often neglected. We make every effort to eat them, but the same food days in a row can become monotonous. I am always looking for ways to incorporate leftovers into another meal to save money. The slow-cooker recipe I discussed in my previous post had a subsequent dish using the leftovers for another recipe, barbecue chicken quesadillas.
This recipe goes together quickly, since the main protein is from a leftover dish. The remaining 10 ingredients require minimal prep, with a total time of around 15 minutes for the entire recipe. I made one modification, I used regular tortillas rather than whole-wheat. My family isn't a fan of the texture of whole-wheat tortillas. Finally, I found that the recipe made 4 servings for my family, not six.
My two kids enjoyed this recipe. I like that it uses leftovers to create another meal, saving me time and money. The best part is that it takes less than 20 minutes to prepare, which is great for a busy weeknight.
This recipe is not currently available online, but can be found in the June 2011 issue of All You magazine.
