1. In a large skillet, heat a little oil over medium heat.  Add the chopped onion, pepper and garlic.  Saute until tender and fragrant.

2. Add the shredded chicken to the pan and mix well with the vegetables.

3. Add the cumin powder, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper to the chicken and vegetables.  Cook for a few minutes so the flavors mix.  If you prefer a spicier quesadilla, you can adjust the amount of chili powder.

4. In a separate skillet, heat a tortilla over medium heat.  Sprinkle a layer of grated cheese on half of the tortilla.

5. Add a portion of the chicken and vegetable mixture over the cheese on one side of the tortilla.

6. Fold the tortilla in half, covering the filling and forming a quesadilla.

7. Cook the quesadilla in the hot skillet until the cheese melts and the tortilla is golden and crispy.  This usually takes about 2-3 minutes per side.

8. Repeat the process with the tortillas and the remaining filling.

9. Once cooked, remove the quesadillas from the pan and place them on a plate.  Cut each quesadilla into triangles.

10. You can serve chicken quesadillas with guacamole, sour cream, hot sauce, or tomato sauce.

Ready!  Now you have a delicious chicken quesadillas recipe to enjoy.  Enjoy!
