Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

My quesadillas are filling enough to serve as a meal and versatile to win big points as a snack while the big game is on. Feel free to sub in your favorite flavored tortillas. Or kick up the spice factor with pepper jack cheese instead of the Mexican blend. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, CO
