Very quick and easy. Definitely don't need to butter the tortillas. Just grease the pan, makes it much easier. This recipe is easily changed to fit whatever you have leftover or you prefer. Next time I will try adding chicken, beef or shrimp. I might even throw in a few vegetables to make it healthy.

You can also just put the butter on the griddle and lay the tortilla on top. You can then just butter the 2nd tortilla before flipping. No mess that way.

Good. Nothing special really. Just your standard fresh-tasing quesadilla. I thought buttering the tortillas was kind of annoying,

Very good! Hard to flip so they cheese stays inside. I would try ham or chicken or roast beef another time or even bacon.

Liked this recipe very much just the way it is shown here---especially how the outside of the tortillas got so crispy!

I would not make these again for a cold lunch but they are very good when they are warm.

Very tasty. I think next time, like the others I will add some chicken and even some bacon. The cream cheese was a great additions. Butter the outsides seem complicated to me though so I too will go with Pam.

Found them a bit bland, although much better with salsa. Next time I will definitely not butter them but spray the pan with butter-flavoured Pam. Has potential.

Made these for a church potluck last night. Almost every single person there asked me for the recipe. Delicious!
