It's time again for Secret Recipe Club reveal! My secret blog assignment this month was Sid's Sea Palm Cooking. Sid lives in a small town 30 miles from the nearest Mexican or Chinese restaurant - or probably any other good restaurant, so she makes her own food at home. I bet it tastes better anyway! And Sid is really good at making the recipes simple and easy-to-follow so anyone can do it.
I kinda got stuck in the Mexican food section while trying to narrow down my choices. Southwest Casserole and Acapulco Chicken were two that caught my eye, but I finally decided on these yummy quesadillas. I'm always on the lookout for easy but flavorful dinner ideas, and these fit the bill exactly. Serve these with a nice salad, and you have a quick and delicious dinner.
Sid added the minced jalapeno to her quesadillas, but I chose to leave it out - even though I would have loved a little heat, too - because I didn't want these to be too spicy for my husband. I seasoned the chicken breast with adobo seasoning when I cooked it and added some chopped cilantro to the chicken and vegetable mixture for a bit of extra flavor without getting too spicy.
Heat or no, the flavors were really good. I had mine with a bit of salsa and sour cream, and extra cilantro and some avocado, but he ate his just the way they were. We'll be having these again.
Soon - since I used half an onion and half a pepper, I only used half the chicken breast I cooked, so that means I got to make them again! They make a really good lunch, too. I added the jalapeno to those - because my husband wasn't home - and a squeeze of lime. So good!
