Yummy Quesadillas. The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and I probably used the full amount of cheese called for in the full recipe. The tortillas were cooked on a cast iron comal. This was served with Recipe #34233 instead of the sour cream. Made for *My 3 Chefs* and *Diabetic Awareness Tag*

I love this recipe. I use extra chilli peppers and make tacos instead of quesadillas.
