Mexican Mix for Quesadillas & TV-Watchin' Chicken Nachos

Hey, It's Alison.

First, my camera is mad at my computer. Or maybe my computer is mad at my camera. They're not talking to each other.
Once the argument is resolved between them & the shunning is over (UnShun!) I'll add some photos.

In the Westly house one of our go-to meals is TV-Watchin' Chicken Nachos. It truly tastes best sitting on the couch watching a movie or an episode of The Office.

Start with the Mexican Mix, then use this to either make Quesadillas or Chicken Nachos.

Mexican Mix:
Leftover rotisserie Chicken, shredded, bones & skin removed
Diced vegetables: bell pepper, onion, tomato, avocado, jalapeno, cilantro, etc.
Black Beans, rinsed & drained
Mix all ingredients together. Throw in what you have & adjust the ingredients on your taste preferences.

To make Quesadillas:
Sprinkle Tortilla with cheddar cheese (or Monterey Jack, Colby Jack, etc)
Sprinkle Mexican Mix on top of cheese
Sprinkle more cheese over MexMix
Top with 2nd Tortilla
Bake 350 10 to 15 minutes, flip once.

To make TV-Watchin' Chicken Nachos:
Preheat oven to 350.
Layer tortilla chips onto oven-safe platter.
Sprinkle MexMix over chips.
Sprinkle cheese over chips & MexMix.
Cover with foil. *Tent up foil or your cheese will stick to foil!
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or til cheese is mellted.

Make these sometime. Seriously- you cannot mess it up.
