We had a couple of friends over and I made these delicious and different quesadillas. I had to make two batches, one for the hotties and one for the milds. I increased the Tabasco to 1 t. and added chopped jalapeno pepper for the hotties. The original recipe was perfect for the milds. Monterey Jack cheese was a great choice. Thanks a bunch.
