Reviews for Barbecued Chicken Quesadillas

In the directions it states to combine the first 9 ingredients. Only 8 are listed. Is there something missing.
I really jazzed this one up a bit. I sauteed chicken with some Montreal Chicken Seasoning with onions and garlic. I added corn and cilantro then poured on some Rudy's Sissy Sauce (Texas BBQ chain sauce) and let it cook. Then I buttered up some whole wheat tortillas and sandwiched the mixture between two light layers of shredded cheddar jack cheese and added a few drops of BBQ sauce and cilantro before putting it in the oven for 15 minutes at 350. It was delish and didn't need anything else!
I did not make the salsa but did make the quesadillas. I used whole wheat tortillas in our quesadilla maker (omitting the butter and using cooking spray instead). I served this with fruited rice pilaf (also on this site). The kids and I really enjoyed it for a quick and healthy weeknight supper.
