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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Combine olives, cheese, salsa (or picante sauce), cilantro, green onions, and (optional) cooked chicken, mix well.
  3. Place 4 tortillas on a baking sheet (or large round stone) Divide the cheese mixture evenly among tortillas and spread.
  4. Top each tortilla with second tortilla pressing down firmly, spray tops with cooking spray.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes or until tops are lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges.
  6. Serve with additional salsa (or picante) or sour cream if desired.

Fabulous! We loved this recipe - I used the optional cooked chicken and also topped it with creme fraiche and salsa sauce, as well as jalapeno peppers too! I can not get Monterey Jack cheese, so I used grated Emmenthal cheese instead - these were LOVELY! Made for photo tag - thanks PVW! FT:-)
