Quesadilla Pie

Here ya go friends, this dinner comes together in less than 30 minutes.  As long as you have some cooked chicken on hand...

Quesadilla Pie
From The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 10 inch tortilla
2 cups shredded chicken*
1/3 cup diced jalapenos, I bought a lil' can and used about half of it
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
salsa, for serving

1. Preheat the oven to 450. Soften your tortilla in the microwave for a few seconds and place it in a greased 9 inch pie plate.
2. Mix chicken, jalapenos, cilantro, 1 cup cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl.  Place in pie plate.
3. Mix eggs, milk, flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl (use the one you just had the chicken in). Pour over filling. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes until cheese is browned and melted.
4. Let cool 5 minutes.  Cut into wedges and serve with salsa on the side.

*I despise when recipes have cooked chicken as an ingredient.  Who has cooked chicken just laying around the house?!  I do...  I cooked up 5 chicken breasts, shredded them and bagged them up for times like this.  I highly recommend you do the same on a lazy Sunday. Each breast is about 2 cups of chicken.

You are definitely going to want to have some salsa with your slice of the pie.  It needs a bit of flavor punching, guacamole would be nice too.  I think next time I will put some salsa into the pie as well.
