#25 Cook a meal from scratch

Yes I did just this.. It was actually pretty darn good.

**Cheesy Fajita Chicken Quesidillas*
1 Pkg of Chicken
1 pkg of Flour Tortillas (burrito size)
1 can of Black beans (drained)
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 sweet onion
Shredded Cheese (Mexican style)
any seasoning you want to add to the chicken while cooking

So you start off -
Cut your bell peppers and onions in strips
Then clean and cut your chicken into cubes or keep whole and cook in skillet until lightly browned -take chicken out and leave excess oil and juices in skillet - you may need to put extra oil in. I add sugar to the skillet to caramelize my onions and peppers but you don;t have to. Add the bell peppers and onion until tender crisp, then add the black beans along with your cut up chicken. Let everything saute in skillet for about 10-15 min. you can add some water - so the chicken does not dry out.

In another pan you can start your flour tortilla, add enough cheese to cover the entire tortilla and then some.. Once the chicken mixture is done to your liking take a few scoops and put on tortilla(off to one side) - once the cheese is melted and the tortilla is slightly browned/crisp you need to fold over one half of the tortilla and use your spatula to smush it down. and WAHLA!!! you have a Cheesy Fajita Chicken Quesidilla YUM!!

I took some pics, but they really don't do this yummy quick meal any justice.

but just to show that I really did do this - as easy as it was I still did it from scratch and worked with what food i had in the house at the time. :0)
