Chicken Quesadilla with Pico de Gallo | Mexican Cuisine | School lunch idea


Tortilla filled with cheese and then grilled - Quesadilla is my family favourite Mexican dish.. You can any savory filling. Today i filled it with Chicken and peppers.


My family thoroughly enjoyed it, its a great quick fix dinner, best for school lunches. I usually make filling ahead, assemble in morning and done! Best part it you can use any filling you have in hand



I served it with Pico de Gallo which is a condiment, mix of onions, tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice, you can add Jalapeno for heat.
