Tomorrow is a special day for special people..MOMS!! There are many other woman to celebrate as well, how about your sister, an aunt or a great friend. Woman have a very special role on this earth. They get to be co-creators and share in the miracle of birth. They are the Nurses, Chauffeurs, Cheerleaders, Chefs, Teachers, Counselors and Friends all wrapped up in one!!

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with these Yummy Chicken Quesadillas!!!

This recipe is so versatile, you can add almost any kind of Spanish  flavors. In this one, I put a pan on med-heat w/ a small amount of EVOO (about 1tblspn) and added:

  • 1 cooked chicken breast (chopped)
  • 1/2 Cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 Cup chopped onions 
  • 1/4 Cup Lentil and Bean Chili

Mix until everything is incorporated and onions get soft.Transfer the mixture into a bowl and set aside. Keep pan hot and grab two whole wheat wraps. Line one of them with some shredded Mexican cheese (not too much, about 1-2 tblspns). Add the chicken mixture on top and add some more cheese. Place second wrap on top, give a little press and transfer to hot pan. Place a heavy plate on top of Quesadilla for about 5 minutes then flip (be careful) and repeat for another 5 minutes. Slice it into quarters and serve it with yummy Guacamole and fresh was ridiculous..ENJOY!!!
