Full Meal Quesadilla

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by KookieMomster

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
