Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas

Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas

Looking for a great dinner recipe? Check out these Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas from www.drugstoredivas.net.I love Mexican food. It’s my favorite type of restaurant to go to, and it’s my favorite food to cook at home too. When we go out to eat, I love authentic Mexican food that I can’t replicate at home. At home, I can get the flavors pretty good, but it still has more like an American-Mexican feel to it. I’m okay with that, especially when I make something like these Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas.

I made them for dinner recently and raved about them all through dinner. Which I guess is pretty egotistical but sometimes, when you nail it, you nail it.

Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon adobo seasoning
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1/2 bag of habanero and jalapeno shredded cheese

What You’ll Do:

Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Looking for a great dinner recipe? Check out these Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas from www.drugstoredivas.net.

Slice the pepper and onion into strips. Saute them in the olive oil until they are tender, about 15 minutes.

Add the garlic, then sautee about two minutes.

Slice the chicken into thin strips and add to the pan. Add the adobo, salt, and pepper. Saute until the chicken is cooked through, about five minutes.

Remove everything from the pan, remove the pan from the heat, and wipe it down.

Put it back on the heat and put in one flour tortilla. Top with cheese and heat it until the cheese is slightly melted.

Top with half the chicken mixture. Add a bit of cheese on top of it and top with another tortilla.

Homemade Kale Pesto Ravioli & Softsoap Hand Soap With Lotion Giveaway (Ends 3/19)

This Homemade Kale Pesto Ravioli post is sponsored by Softsoap.

Looking for a tasty recipe? Check out this homemade kale pesto ravioli from www.drugstoredivas.net.

I’ll be honest: I never liked fresh pasta. It just always tasted so off to me, which is a hard thing to describe, but that’s the truth. Pete is a huge fan of fresh pasta, so when my grandma got him a pasta maker last Christmas, I let out a little sigh. It meant unfavorable fresh pasta would be in our home.

And then Pete made it.

It was amazing.

All these high-end restaurants making fresh pasta not to my taste, but Pete’s recipe is so good. He makes it often, and I just love it. He uses the same dough recipe for spaghetti, lasagna noodles, and ravioli, too — and it’s amazing every time. Pete used it over the weekend to make ravioli stuffed with my favorite kale pesto. What a delicious dinner!

We currently have the new Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion, in the aloe water & lime variant, in our kitchen. It’s perfect there. When you’re cooking, you are generally washing your hands a lot, and that really can make your hands dry. So having a soap that adds some lotion to soothe is great.

And this time of year, when winter is making your hands so dry, you definitely want to put lotion on them. This is a great way to do that without the greasiness that lotion can leave.

When your hands are clean, wrap your dough in plastic wrap and let it rest about 20 minutes.

Cut a chunk of dough and roll it through your pasta maker. Roll it until you reach your desired thickness, then cut the sheet in half.

Put a few dollops of kale pesto on one half of the dough. Add a dollop of ricotta, then, cover that with the second piece of dough. Using a ravioli cutter (which is amazing because it pinches it closed for you) cut the ravioli.

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

Looking for a great breakfast recipe? Check out this zucchini bread recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.Every summer, a group of my family and friends would go camping for a week. The adults would pack coolers with food and drinks. My aunt used to make zucchini bread a lot during this time. One year, my cousin was old enough to help and made the loaf herself.

That was the year a squirrel climbed into their car when they were unpacking their camping gear … and ate the bread!

I actually don’t remember ever seeing zucchini bread at any family function again. It popped into my head recently, so of course, I had to ask my aunt for her recipe. It has changed since the year the squirrel ate it. It’s a lot healthier now, but still tastes just as great.

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cups oil
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 large zucchinis
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

What You’ll Do:

Preheat the oven to 350.

Peel strips of the skin off the zucchini. Then, chop the zucchini in half and pulse it in a food processor.

Beat eggs in a stand mixer until foamy.

Add the oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla. Mix lightly, but well.

Add the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Blend and fold in the nuts, if you choose to use them.

Pour the batter equally into two greased 8×4 loaf pans.

Bake for one hour and 15 minutes.

What’s great about this recipe is that you can freeze the second loaf. I wrap it in foil, then place it in a freezer safe bag. If you’re having overnight guests, pull it out and let it defrost in the fridge. It will be ready for your guests the next day.

If you make this and you need it a little sweeter, you can add a dollop of honey too. Or, if make it with 3/4 white flour and 1/4 whole wheat flour, then continue the recipe as is.

So, if you have a Mardi Gras party coming up and aren’t in the mood to make jambalaya, this candy bark is for you. Plus, it assures there is a dessert at the party too — in case someone forgot to order a King Cake!
