Artichoke Chicken Quesadillas

I confess, I have had a love affair with Mexican food and flavours for a very long time.  My sister introduced me to nachos one time when we were visiting her. I had never tasted anything Mexican before.  She layered tortilla chips onto baking sheets and topped them with oodles of cheese, and peppers, spring onions, jalapenos, olives, etc. before baking them in the oven. It was love at first bite!

  Ever since then I have totally embraced Mexican flavours . . .  tacos, nachos, enchiladas, etc. I just love them all.  Most people will do a turkey curry or pot pie after Christmas, and I do that sometimes too,  but more often than not  I will make turkey enchiladas. Its a family tradition that we love and embrace down through the generations.

I remember one time I had made a huge batch of Turkey Enchiladas and froze a pan of them for supper at a future date.  My oldest boy had a friend to stay overnight, and I found the empty pan under the sofa bed the next morning.  They had indulged in them as a midnight snack, and I dare say they ate them frozen.  Yes, they are that good. But I digress  . . .
Another thing we really like in this house are Quesadillas.  They make for great appetisers, snacks and light lunches.

 Essentially they are tortillas that are filled with whatever is going, folded over and then grilled or baked to heat up the insides and crisp up the tortillas. You cut  them into wedges to serve and usually serve them with a dip of some sort.

Quesadillas are a great way to use up bits and bobs of things you have that, on their own, are not really enough to feed a family, but when you throw them all together, and then pop them into a quesadilla, well . . . you have something really tasty on in your hands that can feed a few more people than just one (unless you are a greedy gus)!!!

I had some leftover chicken from the weekend, but it wasn't enough to really feed both of u...
