Black Bean and Chicken Quesadillas

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/2 yellow onion, sliced thinly
1/2 green or red pepper, diced (or sliced thinly, whatever you prefer)
1/2 cup salsa (or you know, just dump some in til it looks right...)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 tortillas (burrito size)
2 cups Cheddar Cheese

Spray your skillet with cooking spray. Add your strips of chicken; cook on medium-high heat 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add the onions and peppers; cook 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in salsa and beans and cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Sprinkle a bit of cheese on 1/2 of each tortilla, then spoon some chicken mixture over top, and then sprinkle some more cheese.
Fold tortillas in half.
Spray second large skillet with cooking spray. Heat on medium heat. Add quesadillas, in batches; cook 2 min. on each side or until lightly browned on both sides.

Cut into wedges to serve. Serve it up with some sour cream and salsa for dipping.

My review: OMG. One of the best recipes I've made yet. In the words of my boyfriend "you can put these on the make every single day list." add a lot of groaning and yummies to that quote. :-) So good. I plan to make these more more more. Next time, I might add some corn to the mix. Delicious.
