Alicia and I had these for lunch. I used a mixture of both cheddar and jack cheese and added some shredded chicken lightly sprinkled with cumin and chili powder. These were great! Thanks Miller

This quesadilla is simple to prepare and very tasty! You can't go wrong with melted cheese and diced green chiles. Yum! Served with leftover Spanish Rice, pinto beans, diced green onions, cilantro, avocado, and salsa. Thanks!
