    Gabby Abby's Note:

    This may be just about the easiest dinner you'll fix your family! It is low on ingredients and high in flavor. These make a great appetizer too. I have even served these at parties!

      Wanted something quick and no oven for dinner using some leftover crockpot chicken. This was a hit with my hubby and I. Crunchy and gooey goodness. Thanks for sharing!

      Great Quesadilla recipe! We ordinarily just make cheese in a tortilla. If we want meat, we add it. Adding the salsa to the inside is a great touch! This is an easy, tasty, refreshing change of pace. Thanks for the recipe.

      Delicious!! These quick, easy, and very yummy quesadillas were the perfect snack for eating in front of the television while watching football. I halved the recipe, using 2 large chicken breasts and a little more than 1/2 cup medium salsa. I made some with regular flour tortillas, and some with whole wheat flour tortillas and they where great both ways. When filling the tortillas, I added some chopped, green onion on top of the chicken/ salsa mixture before topping with cheese. I used a 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese and put a generous amount in each quesadilla. I cooked these in my cast iron skillet which put a nice, crunchy crust on the tortillas. My family raved over them and gave them 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!! *Made for Fall 2009 PAC*
