Quick and Easy Chicken Quesadillas

The jalapeno cream cheese adds the special kick to this recipe...I've made it without and it's good, but definately use it if you can find it!! Sometimes I will double the recipe for a light dinner, or make as below for a snack or appetizer. NOTE: Sadly, I don't think they make jalapeno cream cheese anymore, so I usually just use regular cream cheese and chopped jalapenos...use as many or as little jalapenos you want for your desired heat level.

I tried these last night, with the only change being that I could not find the flavored cream cheese so I added diced jalepeno to regular cream cheese. These were very good with little effort and would recommend them as a great snack for kids as well as adults. Thanks! :)

Yummy! Quick, simple, and tasty. I too could not find the jalapeno cream cheese, so as others did, chopped some up to add to the mixture. DGS and I enjoyed these while watching football on Sunday. Congrats again Troop Angel for your win for week 6. Made for Football Pool.
