300g chicken thighs, sliced
3 tsp Old El Paso™ Garlic & Paprika Taco Seasoning Mix

1. Toss the chicken pieces in the taco seasoning mix then heat 1 tsp oil in a large pan and stir-fry the chicken until cooked thoroughly until no longer pink inside.

2. Remove the chicken from the heat, and with two forks gently pull apart and shred the strips.

4. Top half of each tortilla with the chicken mixture and grated cheese, then fold the other half of each tortilla, pressing down slightly.

5. Heat a large pan with the other tsp oil, and place two filled tortillas to cook for about 5 minutes in total, turning once until golden brown and piping hot.

6. Repeat until all tortillas mix are used up.

7. To serve, cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with salsa and sour cream.
