KETO CHICKEN QUESADILLA
- 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 3 c. shredded Monterey Jack
- 3 c. shredded cheddar
- 4 c. shredded chicken
- 1 avocado, thinly sliced
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- Sour cream, for serving
Preheat oven to 400º and with parchment paper, line 2 baking sheets.
In a skillet over medium-high temp, heat oil. Add onion and pepper and season with pepper, salt, and chili powder. Heat until it gets soft, five minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Take a bowl and stir together cheeses. Into the center of both prepared baking sheets, add 1 1/2 cups of cheese mixture. Spread into an even layer and make a circle shape the size of a flour tortilla.
Bake cheeses until it gets melty and a bit golden around the edge, eight to ten minutes. Add shredded chicken, onion-pepper mixture, and avocado slices to one half of each. Let cool slightly, then use a spatula and the parchment paper to gently lift and over the side with the fillings, fold 1 side of the cheese “tortilla”. Put in oven to heat, three to four mins more. To make two more quesadillas, repeat.
Into quarters cut each quesadilla. Garnish with sour cream and green onion before serving.
