About this recipe: This is a great recipe for parties. I freeze the leftovers; they reheat quite well. The zesty chicken and cooked peppers are a succulent delight when mixed with the melted cheeses. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with soured cream and salsa.


Serves: 20 

  • 450g skinless, boneless chicken breast, diced
  • 1 sachet fajita seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 green peppers, chopped
  • 2 red peppers, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 10 flour tortillas
  • 500g grated Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon diced, cooked bacon

IV just made these, they were very nice, I put mine standing up in some ramekins to stop the cheese from running out while in the oven - 25 Jul 2016
