      So easy, and very delicious! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and served with salsa, sour cream, and Avocado Dip. Thanks for sharing!

      Great recipe! Buddha simply raved over these! I guestimated the amounts, and used shredded cheddar/jack cheese, yellow onions (on hand), and some fresh chopped cilantro. These have quite a kick, so I served them with sour cream and it complimented the quesadillas well. Thanks for sharing this simplified keeper recipe, we love Cook's Illistrated! :)
