Ingredients

Method

1.Heat oil in large frying pan; cook garlic and onion, stirring, until onion softens. Add spices and capsicums; cook, stirring, until capsicums soften. Remove from heat; stir in chicken.
2.Place one tortilla on board; top with ¼ cup of the cheese, then a quarter of the chicken mixture and finally another ¼ cup of the cheese. Top with a second tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortillas, cheese and chicken mixture.
3.Cook quesadillas, one at a time, uncovered, in same large lightly oiled frying pan, over medium heat, until golden brown. Turn quesadilla, browned-side up, onto large plate then carefully slide back into pan, uncooked-side down. Remove from pan when golden brown both sides; cover to keep warm while cooking remaining quesadillas.
4.Meanwhile, place guacamole ingredients in medium bowl; mash with fork to combine.
5.Serve quesadillas, cut into quarters, with guacamole and, if desired, a dollop of sour cream and a little shredded iceberg lettuce.

Quesadillas are flour tortillas enclosing a savoury filling, and are grilled or fried before being served. You need to purchase a large barbecued chicken weighing approximately 900g to get the amount of shredded meat required for this recipe.
