This recipe for Quesadillas comes from The Pampered Chef Classics (favorite recipes from the Pampered Chef Test Kitchens) I used to work for them and this was one of the recipes I made frequently in our home. You can add cooked chicken for a whole meal! You can also just make for a quick snack or appetizer.
