I'm always on the lookout for simple recipes to make when I am not in the mood to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I found this Awesome Quesadilla Pie recipe to make for dinner one night.
Like most recipes, I didn't care too much for the original so I decided to make some minor changes. I didn't change the overall flavor profile of the dish but just improved the process.
I'm sure some of you are looking at this recipe and saying to yourselves that this is what some call an "impossible pie". At least that's what my wife's family called a dish like this using Bisquick.
My mom was visiting when I made this recipe and she made a comment that she used to make a similar recipe when I was a kid. Involved Bisquick, Cream of Chicken Soup and diced chicken. I need to pick her brain and make it one of these days.
🥄 Bisquick Substitute
If you don't have any Bisquick on hand, you can make your own by combining 1 Cup All Purpose Flour, 1 ½ teaspoons Baking Powder, ½ teaspoon Salt and 1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter (or vegetable oil).
