Ingredients
  • 4 large sheets rectangular tortillas wraps or flatbread (can be found in the deli section of many grocery stores).
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sweet yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 can green chiles

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Place two flatbreads or tortillas in the bottom of the pan, overlapping them a little in the middle. The tortillas should cover the entire pan.

  4. Sprinkle the chicken evenly over the tortillas in the pan.
  5. Sprinkle the cheddar or Mexican cheese evenly over the chicken.
  6. Dot the onion mixture over the cheese.
  7. Sprinkle the Jalapeno Pepper cheese as the next layer.
  8. Squeeze the juice of the lime over the top.
  9. Place the two remaining flatbreads or tortillas on top and press down to secure the top tortillas in place.
  10. Spray the top of the tortillas with cooking spray.
  11. Cook tortillas on the middle rack of the oven, at 400°F, for 20-25 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp and cheese is melted.
  12. Serve immediately with toppings of your choice.
  13. Enjoy!
  14. *NOTE: You can also sprinkle a bit of cheese onto the quesadillas once done and broil until crisped as we did for photos.
