Instructions For Barbecue Shredded Chicken Quesadillas:

Cook chicken breast meat your favorite way for shredding. In the slow cooker for 6-8 hours or boil it-up to you. I like to cook it in a slow cooker until cooked through which is 165 degrees fahrenheit. Then, shred chicken breast meat or if you are using already cooked rotisserie chicken, shred the breast meat.

Add the shredded chicken, diced red onion, Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce, frozen and thawed corn, drained and rinsed black beans, chopped or torn cilantro leaves, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt and Colby Monterey Jack blend cheeses to a mixing bowl and mix well.

Place the chicken mixture on half of the flour tortilla. Fold the tortilla over-in half.

Fry quesadilla in a frying pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Heat through and melt cheese. Heat and brown on both sides.

Remove quesadilla from the frying pan and cut in half, if desired.

Repeat with remaining flour tortillas.

Serve with diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños and sour cream (or salsa). Enjoy!

Easter Crinkle Cookies are a fun and easy cookie recipe because we have made them with a cake mix. We divided the batter into three bowls and colored the batter three different colors.

Breakfast Recipes To Try:

Little Smokies Breakfast Bake-Little smokies are so yummy. They are great with eggs and hash browns and they are also great in this breakfast casserole. We chop them up so they are easier to eat and you don’t end up getting a whole sausage in one bite. Smaller pieces just work out better. This recipe has a delicious flavor and is easy to make.

Bacon Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole is a must try. Breakfast casseroles are so easy to make and they feed quite a few of people. Bacon and hash browns are two of my favorites for breakfast-along with every other breakfast food. I can’t, as I sit here typing, think of a breakfast food that I do not like.

Breakfast Sandwiches are so good! We love Sausage McMuffin sandwiches from McDonald’s. Now we can make them at home and they are delicious. This breakfast sandwich maker is so easy to use and so easy to clean. In the Breakfast Sandwiches post we list a lot of different ideas for changing up the usual breakfast sandwich. Check it out-you are sure to find some you like.

Breakfast Crunch Wrap-how much fun are these!! Taco Bell makes a great Crunch Wrap. However, we like ours more- Copycat Crunch Wrap. After we made the copycat crunch wrap we wanted to make one for breakfast and it turned out fantastic! You have go to try it out. We recently made both of these again. Both are fantastic. The Taco Bell Copycat Crunch Wrap is better to us than their original, still.

Breakfast Muffins are so fun. We make them in a brownie pan so they come out square. They hold their shape very well so we have been know to eat these on the way out the door to work and school. They have great flavor and are simple to make.
