Cajun Chicken Fajita Quesadilla

I hope planning lunchbox menu is a big deal for everyone.. We have to consider certain factors such as healthy ingredients, easiness to prepare, easy to eat from school / work place..
For me Quesadilla is a favorite lunchbox item, in which I can stuff all kind of healthy ingredients so that my picky eating family would eat them.. And every month at least once I used to prepare Quesadilla.. I always try to keep Tortillas readily available in my pantry shelf..cajun chicken fajita quesadilla

So this time rather than healthy I’m coming up with a tasty filling for quesadilla..that is Cajun spiced chicken fajita filling ?!! And it came out really yum..The filling you can prepare overnight and keep in refrigerator.. Later in the morning just microwave it and stuff inside the tortillas!! this is my second quesadilla post.the other one was a Tuna- Green Peas Quesadillacajun chicken fajita quesadilla
