    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    This is how I make them at home! These are dsil's favorite- with no onion and tomato and extra sour cream! lol The great thing about quesadill's is you can tailor them to your exact tastes and it is a great way to sneak some veggies into those veggie haters. Try adding some tomato, avocado, spinach, mushrooms, etc.. inside the tortilla. Great way to introduce herbs too! Try cilantro, cumin, etc here! hope you enjoy!

      *YUM* It doesn't get any easier than this. These Quesadillas are brilliant! The flavors were right on. I did use Frozen Fajita seasoned chicken strips cut up for the cooked chicken. Just popped in the microwave for 5 minutes and cut into chunks. This was a really fast and very satisfying dinner. My family loved it. Served with Salsa on the side. This would be great for those nights when you just want something quick and delicious. This goes into my "Favorites by Zaar" cookbook. Thanks for sharing Hope. Yum.
