CrockPot Chicken Quesadillas Recipe/Tutorial

Here is a recipe for one of our family favorites.  You can personalize it with your favorite fillings and toppings!

Crockpot Chicken Quesadillas

2 Large Chicken breasts
1 ½ to 2 Tablespoons Fajita Seasoning
1 to 2 cups of water
1 package of Large tortillas
2-3 Tablespoons butter
Cheeses of your choice: Quesadilla (I’m cheap and just use regular cheese), Cheddar, Mozzerela, Mexican
Toppings of your choice:  mushrooms, green onions, tomatoes, peppers, etc.
Sides of your choosing:  sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, etc.

Tools Needed:
Crockpot
Griddle or large frying pan
Tiles, foil wrapped brick, or heavy frying pan

Place 1 cup of water and fajita seasoning in crockpot.  Stir.  Place Chicken in crockpot.  Add more water if chicken is not surrounded.  Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 6-8 hours.  This will make your house smell wonderful!
Once chicken is fully cooked.  Take it out and place it on a cutting board.  Using two forks (one to hold chicken and one to shred) shred all the chicken.
Start heating griddle or frying pan.  Spread out 3 tortillas.  Put cheese, chicken and all fillings ending with cheese again on one side of tortilla.  Fold over.

Put a small amount of butter on each spot where a quesadilla will go on the griddle.  I used 2 tablespoons total for 9 quesadillas.  This gives it a nice browning and crispiness.   
Place 3 quesadillas on the griddle.  Use something heavy to push down on the quesadillas.  I used three tiles that I have as trivets (see above picture on griddle).  You could use a foil wrapped brick, a frying pan anything clean, heavy and safe for food preparation.  Let it cook for 2 minutes.  Put down another small amount of butter for the other side of each quesadilla.  Cook for 2 minutes.

While you wait, form an assembly line of another 3 tortillas and start again (see mine above). Cut into triangles for all to enjoy!

This is a delicious meal that is very easy to prepare.  This is also a nice appetizer or something to take to a friend!  Enjoy!
