Easy Chicken Quesadillas

A quesadilla is a traditional Mexican meal dating back to the 16th century. Back then, they were made with a corn tortilla toasted on a griddle, stuffed with cheese and other contents (meat, veggies), and folded over to be eaten by hand. Toppings such as guacamole, salsa, and sour cream appear to have been added later.

Essentially, it is a heated tortilla with melted cheese inside. Aside from cheese, a quesadilla can be filled with almost anything. Check out our own twist on this recipe with chicken and delicious veggies, all prepared and cooked in the woods.
