    Brittney_B's Note:

    This traditional Mexican dish is a joy to feed the family on any weeknight. Full of protein and flavour this dish is sure to please both the carnivorous and picky eaters. The cheesy quesadilla triangles offer an unusual yet delightful twist in place of rice or corn chips. Leftover chilli con carne is also great wrapped in tortillas or served over nachos the next day so you can be sure there will be not a mouthful left of this mouth watering mexican dish. Add less chilli powder (or omit it) for those who aren't fond of spicey foods. Although this dish isn't overpoweringly spicy and chilli does add a subtle, tantalizing zing.
