"Easy to prepare and a family pleaser! I had quite a bit of butter left over. Will only melt half that much next time (2 T). I also had enough filling for 7 tortillas. Could have probably stretched it to 8. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!"
"I added cream cheese to the first six ingredients. I cooked mine a little different, but used this recipe as my basic building block! They were a hit....even with my picky eaters (kids 4 & 8)! We also cooked some refried beans to go along with it! I had cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot the evening before, and used the leftover chicken to make these quesadillas. Easy, quick, tasty meal! I highly suggest adding the cream cheese though! Keeps them from getting dry and makes them extra creamy! Yum!"
"This recipe is great fast and delicious for everyone in our household!!!! Thank you"
"I cooked my chicken in chili lime sauce and baked the quesadilla in my quesadilla cooker but otherwise mad as written. Really good."
"My family and I enjoyed this meal! The thing I did different was I did not use oregano and I boiled the chicken with one cube of bouillon."
