Quick and simple to make and everybody loves them. How can you go wrong?
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
- 6 8-inch flour tortillas
- 1 cup shredded cooked chicken meat

- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- butter or margarine
- guacamole (for garnish) (optional)
- sour cream (for garnish) (optional)
- salsa (for garnish) (optional)
- Heat a skillet over low heat.
- Spread a small amount of butter evenly over one side of tortilla and place tortilla buttered side down in the skillet.
- For each tortilla, sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over 1/2 of the tortilla and top with chopped chilies, chicken, tomato, green onions, and cilantro.
- Fold the other side over the top and press down gently.

This was a perfect lunch today! Since I'm cooking for one this week I took the easy way out; bought a bag of frozen mexican veggies, which included, corn, black beans, onions and peppers. Cooked them for a few seconds in the microwave. Added them on top of diced chicken breast and then topped off with a Mexican cheese mixture, tomato, onion and cilantro. Yummy! Thanks Sue for sharing! Made for ZWT 5 Mexico
Bought dh a quesadilla maker and we made this recipe for our first try. WHAT a hit. Thank you so much sue, I used a rotissere chicken and shredded it up, used 10 inch flour tortillas and left the tomato off because I am the only one that would eat them. Thanks for a great recipe that will be used again. :)
ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT and EASY!!! Double winner in my book! Was running short on time and used these as a side dish to recipe #263966. I bought pre-cooked chicken and used sour cream as the only option. WONDERFUL! They really paired well with my other dish. We are going to bed HAPPY tonight! Thanks for posting!
