Brie, Shredded Chicken, Artichoke + Jalapeño Quesadilla // Simple Guacamole+Salsa

If you know me or are a good friend of mine, you'll know that I love sandwiches. I appreciate them immensely. A sandwich-something delicious sandwiched between a vessel such as bread-white/brown, a bagel, a burger bun, a tortilla, focaccia, so on and so forth. You're getting the picture, right? I'm looking at 'the sandwich' in its fantastic wide variety of  forms. There are so many options-all super!


Tell  me you like something and I'll make it for you if you come to my house. Tell me you love chocolate/pineapple/tomatoes/eggs or Brie and I'll make something delicious for you using that ingredient. 

I met my friend's new (boy)friend the other day and he said that he loves Brie and how he loved this sandwich. I told him I'd work on something with Brie. I couldn't think of what to make. Another friend-Karen, was telling me about a quesadilla she was making. So, I thought yeah, lets make a quesadilla with melty Brie all up in it! The final product: a Brie, shredded chicken, artichoke, jalapeño, sundried tomatoes quesadilla with a simple guacamole and salsa. 

There's a lot of deliciousness going on here. In my opinion, maybe I'm biased but, this is a solid tasting quesadilla and since a quesadilla is Mexican, I made a simple guacamole and salsa to go along. 

Look, just do me a favour and make this?!

Artichoke hearts, jalapeños, tortilla, Brie, shredded chicken, sundried tomatoes: quesadilla is under way!

Load up one side of the tortilla with shredded chicken.

Arrange sliced jalapeños, artichoke hearts and sundried tomatoes on top.

Cover with a few thick slices of Brie.

Place in a cold pan, place over a medium heat and toast until melty, golden and delicious.

Recipe, makes 1 quesadilla.

For this recipe, I'm not going to give you quantities just an ingredients list for you to work from because your tortilla might be bigger/smaller than the 8 inch one I used! Add as much/little of the ingredients as you like!
