How to Make "Mexajun" Quesadillas


  1. Heat medium sized skillet over medium temperature.

  3. Place tortilla, oil side down, onto skillet.
  4. Quickly, layer chicken, bacon and cheese on tortilla. Then sprinkle with Cajun seasoning to taste.
  5. Top with another tortilla, oil side up.
  6. When cheese has begun to melt, (after about 1 minute) turn quesadilla and cook other side also for about 1 minute.
  7. Repeat steps 1 - 6 with remaining quesadillas.
