I love making quesadillas, and these loaded quesadillas are the best! It's a great meal that is easily customizable, and you only need a few simple ingredients to make them. The purest form of a quesadilla is just cheese melted into a tortilla, but these loaded quesadillas have black beans, salsa, chicken and peppers to add a lot of flavor and make them more filling and wholesome. These are great for a light lunch, snack, or dinner! You can easily make these gluten free by subbing the tortillas for corn ones, and you can skip the chicken to keep these vegetarian.
This stovetop chicken shawarma isn't slow roasted on a spit like traditional shawarma, but it has all the flavor and texture. Promise. The trick is in the cooking temperatures and a killer marinade that gives this amazing flavor. This shawarma is quick to make and is great in wraps, pita pockets and salads. Make a batch and keep it in your fridge and you'll have multiple lunch or dinner options ready in minutes!
This recipe is one that I have been after for many years. It was written in a cookbook by my mom, then ripped out and placed in another, then it was misplaced and lost forever. One day, I was in the kitchen, about to fix up some Spicy Chicken Manchurian, when I decided I was going to attempt making Chicken with Almonds from memory. I vaguely remembered my mom making it, and with just half of the ingredients in mind, I began mixing and experimenting with sauces until I had my "Aha!" moment, and it was definitely worth the effort.
