    KookieMomster's Note:

    This can be made with any fully cooked chicken, I use Once A Week Chicken. I also use Amy's brand refried beans because they are lower in fat than brands made with lard. Fresh Mushrooms are best, canned ones are too wet. I usually make 3 of these when the kids and I have them for dinner

      Loved this idea, I changed it a bit to suit our family. I left out the chicken (so we can have a meat free meal), added coriander (cilantro) and salsa. I reduced the butter to 1 teaspoon in total. I made enough to feed our family - a hit. We love quesadilla's and this one is great. Very filling, we served it with a simple salad. thanks1 Elizabeth

      Muy beuno!! 5 stars all the way! I tripled the amounts to feed 3 adults and we were stuffed and very happy. The one thing I added was a slice of crisp crumbled bacon to each quesadilla, since our local Mexican place uses it in theirs. Loved the refried beans, too. Thanks so much for posting this yummy recipe. MERP'd for All New Zaar Cookbook tag.
