"Tasty tortillas filled with chicken, spring onions and goats' cheese or, for a milder cheese flavouring, replace the tangy goats' cheese with ricotta cheese or any other soft cheese. Served with avocado and garlic dip, diced cucumber and tomatoes, these are ideal for a light meal or a supper snack. Tortillas have been a staple of the Mexican diet since the time of the Aztecs. I have adapted this recipe, from an International Masters '1001 recipes for pan or wok' recipe card, and posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. 350g = 12 ounces; 175g = 6 ounces."

"We made these quesadillas for dinner last night and I really enjoyed them! I love goat cheese, so I knew that I would love this dish. I grilled my chicken on the BBQ before shredding it, which made it nice and tender and juicy. I followed all of the ingredients and instructions as posted. I didn't even top it with anything, it was good on it's own, though I do think tomato would be nice as you mentioned. I'll certainly make this again. Made for ZWT5. Thanks!"
"What a divine twist on the traditional quesadilla. I used fat free ricotta, a suggested alternative and tossed a couple of mushrooms into the filling. The lime and cilantro unify the chicken and cheese. I served mine with salsa verde which complemented the dish just perfectly. Thanks! Made for Potluck Tag."
"Deliciously easy! I used a brie spread type of cheese instead of goat cheese other than that made as posted. Love the cilantro. Thanks bluemoon downunder for posting. Made for Potluck tag."
"Have to admit i did not follow the recipe, but you are getting 5 stars just for the tip on the egg with the cheese. that was so useful and amazing. my kids loved it and now we have another alternative that they will actually eat. Thanks!"
"What a great, fast, treat for lunch! Absolutely adored this. The only sad part is that after making this, I had to go find Dennis, who was sitting squarely on the tractor. The Quesadilla help up great as I had to run behind him to grab his attention. I seriously followed this exactly, loved the addition of chili sauce, and didn't add the egg white, as it held together firmly. I managed to slip bits of sliced tomato into the folded cheesy, chicken delight, and it really was terrific, with or without the extra tomato. I used shredded rotisserie chicken, along with a mixture of goat cheese & cheddar. Perfect, bluemoon! Will make this often ~ Made for *I Recommend* game."
"We eat quesadillas on a weekly basis! I used feta and added a few sun-dried tomatoes. I had never thought about using the egg white to seal them, and it really works. I enjoyed the chili sauce which gave it extra flavor. Thanks Bluemoon! Roxygirl"
"I used a soft goat cheese and cheddar. They stayed together well, I did use the egg white to glue them together. We very much enjoyed these!"
"Totally different take on the ordinary quesadilla. I really enjoyed this. Didnt use the egg white- didnt need it bc i used queso blanco- which when melted makes everything stick together- you would need it though if using a cheese like goat or ricotta- fresh coriander is simply fresh cilantro here in the states- Nice fresh flavor and a great combo- thanks blue! "
"Nice! I used a mixture of green onions and shallots and used queso-fresco instead of goat cheese. Since i used small tortillas I did not need the egg whites, I simply put a weight on top while they cooked. Thanks bluemoon!"
