Quesadillas and Fajitas

This week as part of my "eating the rainbow" shopping spree, I bought a yellow pepper and a green pepper.  Normally I stick to green peppers because they are cheaper, but I wanted to be extra colorful.  With them I made quesadillas and fajitas.  The great thing about making these two dishes is that the main preparation is the same.  Basically, you cut up some peppers and onions, and chicken or steak if you want some protein.  Then you saute them in a pan with olive oil and some spices.  The packet of spices called "fajita" at the grocery store is pretty good.  Alternatively, you can find recipes to make your own fajita seasoning online. The peppers and onions provide enough flavor, though, that you can even do without any spices.

If you want a fajita, you put the ingredients inside of a tortilla and add cheese, salsa, guacamole, or whatever else you want.  If you want a quesadilla, you add lots of shredded cheese and fry the mixture inside a tortilla for a few minutes.  Both are super easy and super tasty.  Which do you prefer?
