Lime Chicken Quesadillas

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
3-4 limes, squeezed
1 can black beans
Shredded cheddar cheese
Rice (We like to use Cilantro Rice (recipe below))

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown chicken in 2 Tbls. oil until 1/2 way cooked. Pour in lime juice and continue browning until chicken is fully cooked. Cook tortilla in a little bit of butter in a skillet, until lightly browned on both sides. Top 1 tortilla with black beans, rice, chicken, and cheese. Cover with a second tortilla. Bake at 350 until cheese melts. For a crisp tortilla brush with water before baking. Garnish with your favorite toppings. (Salsa, Sour Cream, Olives, Tomatoes, Avocados, Ranch Dressing etc.)
