BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Quesadillas

Quick, easy and oh so satisfying! We like these for a quick snack. Doubled it makes an easy dinner for 4. I will pick up a rotisserie chicken and a bag of salad mix on the way home from work and dinner is half made before I get home. With a little extra effort you can saute up some crispy bacon and sliced mushrooms. Makes them even better!

I woudlnt really call these "BBQ" chicken quesadillas, more like mexican because of the salsa and taco sauce, but they were tastey. I left out the chilis and when they were done cooking, I pried some of them open and threw some shredded lettuce, sour cream and the salsa in for DF and DBF. Cutting the recipe in half made more then enough for three of us for lunch. Thanks for the recipe.
