Excellent recipe! I "fried" the quesadillas after filling them in olive oil Pam just to crisp them up a little. I also added sliced avocado. Fast, easy, great meal!

We really liked these! Like other reviewers said, the smokiness of the chipotles was really nice! It was really quick and nice for a meal with pantry items! Thanks!

Wonderful burritos! I love the smokiness the chipotles added. I also added some grilled chicken breast into the burritos. Thanks Geema!
