Ingredients

  • 1 rotisserie chicken, skin removed and breast meet only, diced
  • 1 orange pepper, diced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) fresh (uncooked) corn kernels, about 1 cob
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) finely sliced red onion
  • 1 pkg (478 g) Compliments Burrito Kit
  • 2 cups (500 mL)Compliments Balance Part Skim Mozzarella Shredded Cheese

Method


  1. Preheat a panini press or a skillet to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine chicken, pepper, corn, mushrooms and onion. Season with the burrito seasoning mix. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Sprinkle bottom half of each tortilla with 2 tbsp (30 mL) cheese. Divide chicken mixture evenly between tortillas. Sprinkle each evenly with remaining cheese. Fold tortillas in half.
  3. Lightly oil panini press or skillet and cook 2 quesadillas at a time until crisp and golden on both sides and heated through, about 5 to 7 min. If using a skillet, flip quesadillas over when brown on the underside. Cut in half and serve with salsa (from kit) for dipping.

Tip:To remove kernels from a cob of corn, use a sharp knife and cut downward, allowing the kernels to fall on a plate. In this recipe, simply add the corn to the other ingredients – there's no need to cook it first.
