    MarraMamba's Note:

    This is a makeover of grandma2929's Taco Bell Chicken Quesadilla into a lighter healthier and lower sodium version. I don't think flavor was compromised on here.

      Loved these and the sauce really tasted great with the veggies and chicken. Thanks for posting, made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.

      Well I'm going to have to be a little bit of a Debbie Downer here. I made the sauce exactly as stated (using the sour cream option) and to me it just seemed SOO sweet, and with the kind of odd aftertaste that Splenda has I found these quesadillas a little hard to get down :( I'm not even sure I would like it with regular sugar because pairing something that sweet with chicken just didn't wind up tasting good to me.

      These were great! I added mushrooms b/c didn't have zucchini... but zuccs would be good too. Used cheddar and mozz, b/c what we had. Will be making these again. I wonder, too, if I could lower the sugar a bit w/out ruining flavour? Anyway, thx for the yummy recipe!
