    Charmie777's Note:

    I've been making these for years. I love it when I have leftover chicken, so I get to make these! I've also made them with leftover turkey. Ingredient amounts are approximate. Feel free to adjust to your liking!

      OMG... I made these quite awhile ago... July 8th to be exact. I made them and was raving to another reviewer (pammyowl) about how great they were, so she decided to make them, also. I used some left-over chicken and bottled BBQ sauce. I did not heat them in a pot or pan, I zapped it in a bowl in the micro-wave while I was sauteing the bell pepper & onion (time saver and less mess). I did not use cilantro. The only ingredient that was different was that I used "Pepper Jack" cheese instead of "Monterey Jack" (it was what I had at the time). After sauteing the veggies, I wiped out the non-stick skillet with a paper towel and did not add butter to the tortillas (not needed, in my opinion). I love almost any quesadilla that I have made or ones that I can get my hands on, but never once thought of BBQ Chicken as an option! Hubby & I loved them! Thank you for posting. (Made for "Name That Ingredient" tag)

      Very good! I used leftover BBQ chicken, so I skipped the sauce. Will make again!

      Quick and easy, this hit the spot for dinner. I used yellow and red peppers and skipped the cilantro and most of the butter. Very nice! Made for ZWT8. Thanks Charmie777!
