      We really enjoy this recipe! While I found it originally on another site, I'm so glad it's here. I did make a couple of changes ~ I hate cilantro so I subbed fresh parsley, I used diced jalapenos from a jar, and bought and used a package of grilled chicken strips that I warmed up; everything else was the same. All my changes worked great and I would stick with them in the future. These quesadillas have great flavor and are great for lunch or dinner. Thanks for posting ~ I'll be using this recipe over and over!

      These quesadillas were definitely Outstanding! I did change a few things. Instead of chopping all the veggies by hand, I put all the salsa ingredients into a food processor- Done in a minute! For the chicken I used; Lime Chicken soft taco Lime Chicken Soft Tacos. Awesome flavor! Then on the griddle I folded each individual tortilla in half while cooking- easier to flip. Made for cinco de mayo. Everyone loved them!
