These Chicken Quesadillas make for a perfect weeknight meal. You will find them loaded with chicken, cheese, peppers, onions, and tomatoes. Serve them with a basket of tortilla chips and you have a great Mexican dinner.
We enjoy taco night at home weekly. I make easy Oven Tacos when I am pressed for time and needing convenience. When we head out to the restaurants, I am always anxious to order Quesadillas from the appetizer menu. I will enjoy them for my meal. The big issue is the cost when dining out is crazy. Quite often they are over $10 for a small plate of quesadillas. That’s just plain crazy.
We have been trying to keep our grocery budget in check lately. Shopping at Aldi saves us a bundle each and every week. We made our Pepperoni Grilled Cheese Sandwiches again this week and also this great Chicken Quesadillas Aldi Meal. These really made for a great meals that filled my large family and kept our grocery budget to a minimum.
We purchased all the ingredients at Aldi for this meal. Obviously you can purchase the items at any grocery store.
