Quesadillas: A Perfect meal for your lunchbox!!

Tired of carrying the same boring things in your lunchbox day after day? 
Well, here is something that is definitely going to brighten your day and obviously your lunch breaks at your office and something even your kids would love to eat in school!!
These Quesadillas are not only healthy but also really tasty. The plus point - you don't have to spend hours in preparing them. Fill them with any filling of your choice - freshly made, market bought or even leftovers from previous nights dinner are great to go in between the tortillas. Some of the fillings that taste great between the tortillas are roasted chicken tandoori chicken. minced meat, cottage cheese, mashed potatoes, stir fried veggies or any other filling that your heart desires.
What's even better? Well, they can be made the night before and packed in the lunchboxes and all you are all ready to go in the morning. Isn't that sound just great?

Saut√© the onions and peppers until they are soft about 3 minutes and set aside in a large bowl. 
Place the shredded chicken in a small bowl and season with cayenne pepper, chilli powder, salt and pepper. Mix, coating the chicken completely.
