Recently made Quesadillas for the first time so this sounded really good. After I took this out of the oven I added to the top 1/2 sliced green bell pepper,1 chilli, one sliced tomato, a 1/2 cup sliced black olives and then put the sour cream on top. It was divine. Thanks for posting =)

Great way to use up leftover roast beef, also. I will definitely make this again with other leftovers. By the way - the fried tortillas are very tasty just on their own, or dipped in salsa!

Really yummy! I added scallions on top and served with sour cream. This one is a keeper! I skipped cutting the tortillas into strips and frying them in oil. The first time I made it I did. The second time I made it I just sprayed PAM in the frying pan and lightly browned each tortilla for about 1 minute on each side. Then tore 2 of them into pieces and overlapped them to cover the bottom of the casserole dish. Then I put on the chicken and salsa mixture and then two more torn tortillas then sprinkled on the cheese. The pieces I tore were large - about 3 or 4 inches. So it turned out to be a lot easier doing it that way and less fat by not cooking the strips in oil with almost no difference in taste. Overall a great recipe. Freezes well too :)
