Back in the day...

In college, a bazillion years ago, I waitresses at a little Mexican place called Tortilla Flat. We had the best salsa! (don't ever get fresh salsa in your eye by the way) Most of the food was grilled and or vegan, so as Mexican restaurants go, this one was on the healthier side. One of my favorite dishes were the grilled chicken quesadillas. So tonight I replicated them the best I could, and they turned out great!

Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

4 large flour tortillas
2 small tomatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 chicken breast, grilled & diced
2 cups shredded montery jack
sour cream

Grill chicken (I used a mesquite marinade) and dice. Place 2 tortillas on a cookie sheet (for easy transportation) Top each tortilla with half of the chicken, onion, tomato, and cheese and then top with the other tortillas. Grill the tortillas over medium high heat for about 3 minutes on both sides or until cheese is nice and gooey. Slice and serve with salsa and sour cream.
