Yummy quesadilla's. I made plain ones with only the cheese, chicken, jalapeno and hot sauce (because that's how my son likes them) and made others that contained all the noted ingredients plus some extras such as pickled onion, parsley, green onions. The possibilities are endless. A do again. Thank you Teresa for sharing.

Loved these! My grandson raved and asked for a repeat next Sunday for the football game. They were a little messy 'flipping' but I have a feeling that I'll get that process nailed down as often as we plan on having them. lol. Thanks for sharing this great keeper, Teresa. Made for FYC tag.
