Spicy Quesadilla

"Very, Very good, if you can find the sundried tomato tortillas, they add a wonderful taste, as compared to the plain ones. We pass the salsa also, with the sour cream. More heat can be added if desired and the recipe can be scaled down to one or two."

  1. Guess what Derf! I HAD sun-dried tortillas, as you can see from the photos! This was a wonderful recipe and all because they are baked to finish them off! I made this exactly as posted, but with one small addition - I used a little yellow pepper as well as the red. These were gorgeous, and I am going to serve them to another zaar member, Lindseylcw, who is visiting me this weekend, for her first meal of the holiday! This reicpe is a keeper for me and very much enjoyed. Merci Derf! Made for the Hot and Spicy event in the Photos Forum. FT:-)
     
  2. i added cooked chicken to mine also. and following another reviewers suggestions i topped with lettuce, sour cream, cheese and tomatoes. This was awesome! I'd give it 10 stars if I could
     
  3. This was a very easy recipe to follow and only made a few changes. I got some grilled chicken from the frozen section and microwaved it and also put in 4 cloves of garlic (becuz we like garlic). Also used a quesadilla maker instead of the oven... Anyway they came out great, Thank You very much! Will definately make again!
     
  4. This is quick, easy and tasty and sure to be a regular on the menu at our house. I've made it twice now, cutting the filling in half and using four spicy salsa tortillas (two serves) with low fat sour cream & salsa to serve. The first time I used half Vegetarian Red Leicester and half veg low fat cheese, and today I used regular veg cheddar (Red Rubicon). I also used the full amount of olives today, and while both meals were great, today's was probably slightly better. Last time I sprayed some light olive oil on the outside of the uppermost tortillas before baking, but found this crisped them a little too much. Thanks for a terrific recipe!
     
  5. My kiddies just loved this. I also added cooked cube chicken as well. Served ours with lettuce, tomato, more cheese and salsa on top. Looked just as good as it tasted! Thx for the post! This will quickly become a weekly regular at our house!
