Although I love quesadillas, i make these into wraps and like them just as much. I keep the fixings on hand always. 10 minutes and my meal is ready and delicious. I can use whatever size tortilla I want, add a side dish, salad, or add shredded lettuce to the wrap. if you want it more spicy hot use the hot Rotel tomatoes or add your favorite hot salsa.

I cannot cook - and when I made this recipe, both my husband were surprised at how much we loved it! It's easy and fast! Like one of the other reviewers, I doctored the chicken by adding chili powder to it before adding it to the skillet. I also skipped the oil and used cooking spray to cook the Quesadillas - turned out great. This is now a staple recipe in our house! THANK YOU!
