Nice quick lunch for yourself or for you and your honey. Recipe can be cut in half to make for one. We like to add 1 or 2 of the variations, there's always something left over in the fridge to be used up, use your imagination. (the oil can be replaced with veggie cooking spray, it works just as well) Our standard is deli chicken slices, a mix of cheddar and parmesan, green pepper sticks, and chopped green onions and fresh cilantro, served with hot salsa. Yummy!!!

I have always loved quesadillas just never made them. These were so easy and so tasty, my husband has never tried them at all, and he really enjoyed them. I used a sharp cheddar cheese, chicken, tomato, green pepper, green chilli, black olives and sour cream. I know it will become a 'regular'!! =)
Made this last night for supper and oh was it yummy!!! I made it in the oven on a cookie sheet instead and it turned out great!!
This was too easy, I added some caramelized onion/garlic and black bean paste. I served them as an appetizer -- I was pulling them off the griddle and serving them off hot right off the cook-top island. The guests kept eating them and liked them so much that we had to delay dinner for a couple of hours.
