    rumpie1's Note:

    We love to eat these for dinner; they're fast and easy. They are low in fat too! You can also throw in some rice and add sour cream for dipping along with the salsa. I cook the chicken in the oven (marinated in luisiana hot sauce and salsa) and then I make the Quesadillas when the chicken is still hot. You can also use previously cooked chicken.

      I have been making quesadillas like this for years. It is a great way to use up some left over chicken and such a fast easy meal!

      The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is because I didn't have any salsa or green onion. I chopped some tomato and added it to some cooked, white rice for on the side. This was a delicious and easy recipe. Instead of doing these in a frying pan, I used burrito-size flour tortillas, folded them in half over filling and baked them in a 425 oven for 12-15 min. Thank you for the great recipe! :)
