    Chef Patience's Note:

    This is one of the ways I make a simple quesadilla at home. Quesadillas made like this can be found at Mexican restaurants.

      I make these up and throw some chicken in. I then freeze them and when I want them for lunch or to take to work, I just take one out of the freezer and by the time I get to work it is ready to be zapped. Yum!

      Fast and easy...much tastier than throwing together a sandwich. I used smart balance butter and just used fiesta blend cheese with some taco sauce sprinkled on top of that. Great Little Meal!
