How to Make "Mexajun" Quesadillas


  1. Heat medium sized skillet over medium temperature.

  4. Quickly, layer chicken, bacon and cheese on tortilla. Then sprinkle with Cajun seasoning to taste.

  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.
