Quesadillas

2 cups salsa

Cook the chicken, onions, and peppers in a skillet. When the chicken is cooked completely through, set aside. Continue to cook the onions and peppers until soft. To prepare shells add (in the center) the cheese, chicken, salsa, onions, peppers and a dash of chili powder (for a bit of a kick). Fold the tortilla in half and place on a baking sheet for 5-7 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Once the shells are crisp, cut them into small strips.
Sometimes a cheese sauce is a wonderful addition to this dish.
