    SusieQusie's Note:

    Using left-over or deli rotisserie chicken, these quesadillas are a cut above the norm, perked up with the as-spicy-as-you-wish poblano pesto.

      The pesto was a nice change from the usual basil pesto, but we found the quesadillas slightly dry and....missing something? Maybe I should have used more pesto. I did have mine with sour cream and salsa and that improved it some. Thanks for sharing, SusieQusie!
