Fried tortilla bread with chicken stuffing (quesadilla) - recipe

Taco and Mexican food is delicious to eat and I would say it is rather easy to make. But we always have tortilla bread as leftovers and they go hard as we never use them again.  But since I have a no waste policy I try to include them in a new dish some other day. This time I decided to make fried tortillas with chicken and potato stuffing. We liked it a lot and therefore I have decided to make these as nice snacks to take with us, when we go out for picnics once the weather is warmer.
few tortilla breads
2 chicken breasts, cut in bite size pieces
2 potatoes
1 onion
1 dl sweet corn
1 yellow bell pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 dl grated cheese

1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Fry it in a deep pan on high heat. Add some of the spices. Add slices potato, onion and bell pepper and add the remaining spices. Add the sweet corn as well and mix well. Put on the lid and lower the temperature so that the stuffing becomes little soft and mushy. 

2. Once the stuffing is done, put one of the tortilla breads in the pan and put stuffing of half of the bread. Fold over the other half and let it fry until golden brown. Turn to the other side and let both sides become golden. Add few tbsp oil if needed. Serve with a nice green salad.
