    Great quesadillas for sure! The only shame is that I was out of fresh cilantro and happened to have some dried from Penzey's I had just received so I used that. Not the best substitute but it worked okay. :) Thanks.

    We really enjoy this recipe! While I found it originally on another site, I'm so glad it's here. I did make a couple of changes ~ I hate cilantro so I subbed fresh parsley, I used diced jalapenos from a jar, and bought and used a package of grilled chicken strips that I warmed up; everything else was the same. All my changes worked great and I would stick with them in the future. These quesadillas have great flavor and are great for lunch or dinner. Thanks for posting ~ I'll be using this recipe over and over!
