Crisp and cheesy, these Mexican-style snacks from field editor Jeri Dobrowski of Beach, North Dakota are fun and flavorful. "We hosted a family reunion one spring and made a fiesta dinner. Everyone loved these quesadillas," notes Jeri.

"Tasty! I made them ahead of time (during nap time LOL) refridgerated then just put them in the oven for @ 10 - 15 min at 350. Because of this I omited doing the quesadillas in the frying pan."
