In this instructable, I will show you how to make spicy chicken quesadillas. Quesadillas is a great alternative to bread for breakfast or for lunch. Especially when you add hot toppings they get even better. Quesadillas are easy to make and the options are endles.

The main ingredient of a quesadilla is a tortilla. You can use store bought tortillas or homemade tortillas. I recommend using homemade flour tortillas, which are also easy to make by following our instructable for this. Beside one or more tortillas we will use the following ingredients: chicken, onion, garlic, roasted red tomato sauce, chives, cheese.

When you bite into one of the quesadillas that you have made, just close you eyes and savour the moment. Forget about your schedule and all the things that you need to do. The only thing you need to do is enjoy and nothing more.
