It’s Steelers football Sunday! I’m enjoying watching the Steelers play the Ravens this afternoon and am keeping my fingers crossed for a W. We need it! I should be doing chores around the house and getting ready for the week ahead, but instead I’m lounging on the couch, cheering for the Steelers. Seems like a much better way to pass the time! As I was watching, I got hungry. Inspired by the football on TV, I made a football friendly dinner. There isn’t much to it, but I thought I’d share it anyway.
I took a package of chicken tenderloins and put them in a pan. I covered them with a jar of salsa (just used Pace, nothing fancy) and popped them in a 425 degree oven for 25 minutes. When they were cooked through, I shredded the chicken with two forks. Then things got sinful…
Yup, I went with a quesadilla. I took a tortilla, filled it with chicken and shredded cheese. Topped with another tortilla and then into the oven it went. I prefer the baked quesadilla over the fried variety. I feel like it’s healthier. Once the tortillas were crispy and the cheese was melted, I sliced it up and smeared on some sour cream and more salsa.
DELICIOUS football food. My belly is now happy…let’s see what the rest of this game brings…GO STEELERS!
