This is actually a quesadilla recipe but Julia calls them questestados. I'm not quite sure where she got that from but it's hillarious every time, really.
I know I've said this about other recipes but I could seriously eat this a couple of times a week, it's definately 'bloke' food. This will make about 4 or 5 large quesadillas. If anyone has a decent recipe for the seasoning please let me know, for now the supermarket bought stuff is pretty good.

1 skinless chicken breast cut into smallish pieces (substitute a tin of kidney beans for a vegetarian quesadilla)
1 tin of black beans, drained
1 tin of whole kernel corn, drained
1/2 packet of taco seasoning powder (Old El Paso is good)
1 packet of burrito seasoning powder
1 onion diced
1 courgette diced
3 tomatoes diced
1 capsicum (bell pepper) diced
1 tin of chopped tomatoes, drained

Cook the chicken and onion together in a saucepan with a little oil until the chicken is nicely browned.
Add all the other ingredients and mix well, you may need to add a little water at this stage.
Cook for approximately 1 hour until the mixture is thick enough so that it will not run off the tortilla and the flavours are well developed. Add water if it thickens too quickly.
Spread some of the the mixture onto a tortilla, grate cheese on top and place another tortilla on top. Cook in oven at 180C/355F for 10 mins or until tortilla is slightly brown and starting to become crisp. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Eat. Oh man give me more...
