Reviews for Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas
"I made only the quesadillas and not the dipping sauce since we are not blue cheese fans. I didn't have celery or olives, so I used half a bell pepper that I saut?ed with the onion and some black beans instead. Came out terrific."
"Love Love Love this recipe!"
"For a fun twist with extra blue cheese flavor, try using blue cheese stuffed olives!"
"Oh so good...my family loved this recipe; however, we are not big fans of blue cheese so I used ranch dressing to dip. But truthfully did not even need it. One thing...my quesadillas did not brown in the oven so they did not look as perfect as the picture, my family did not seem to care."
