Gosh I just saw this in my cookbook and forgotten to rate it. I tried this recipe 3 months ago and it was really good. Has to be the first time I made quesadillas that actually held together. I made it just as you said but I imagine if anyone wanted to add chicken it would fit right in.
Kari, I really enjoyed this quesadilla! I used summer squash and carrots, sweet Maui onions and left out the bell pepper. I used sharp cheddar and salsa and sour cream to top. Yum! I had a delicious dinner! Thanks!
Very easy to make and YUMMY to boot. We also added some fresh herbs for a different twist.
