Chicken Quesadilla Pie


1 (10-inch) flour tortilla (these are often labeled “burrito-sized”)
Non-stick cooking spray
3 cups cooked, shredded chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken, and you can easily get 3 cups of meat from one of those)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup drained jarred pickled jalapenos, chopped
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
2 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder


Preheat oven to 450 degrees, and adjust oven rack to middle position.

Spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Press the tortilla into the pie plate, and lightly spray the tortilla with non-stick spray.

Toss the chicken, cilantro, jalapenos, 1 cup of the cheddar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl until well combined. Spread the filling over the tortilla.

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, and baking powder. Slowly pour over the filling, and sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Let cool 5-10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

Serve with fresh salsa and sour cream.

Yield: 1 9-inch pie (about 4 main dish servings)
