    westtextazzy's Note:

    Here is a fast, easy way to make a great snack with chicken. Kids will like the cheesy goodness. Adults will love the pico de gallo (literally, "beak of the rooster." It is an excellent chunky salsa with the nutrients kicked way up by the black beans. I use a combination of butter and olive oil in a skillet to get the crispier exterior. If you like, you can spray each quesadilla with cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted, but this does not give the same crispness. Prep time includes 3 hours refigeration time for the pico.

      Colorful and delicious. Guess I'm part kid and part adult because I loved both the oozing cheeses and the pico de gallo - the cucumber made it something special, very fresh tasting with a sharp punch from the onion and jalapeno! The preparation was unclear as I couldn't figure out what "filling ingredients" referred to exactly - and following the directions, I mixed the chicken into the pico, when it would have made more sense inside the quesadilla. Also there was such a small amount of broccoli slaw that maybe added a tiny bit of crunch but not much else. I'll definitely make the pico on its own again to serve with chips!
