Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Whats Cooking from

So tasty and so easy! Authentic Mexican appetizer or snack... also great to make for company because it is so simple! Another favorite with company and fun to make with your kids! For variations you can add jalapeno peppers, use steak instead of chicken, or use anything else you may want to experiment with. You can even substitute the insides with pepperoni, mozzerella cheese, green peppers, onions, mushrooms.... Flatten as above and serve pizza sauce for dipping! Think I might try to make pizza quesadillas for my next appetizer now!

I made these for my FIL and myself using leftover chicken from Recipe #472985. We each had one quesadilla and we were stuffed by the time we finished them. These were very easy and super tasty. Served with a side of sour cream, guacamole and salsa. Made for Spring 2012 PAC
