I have been using this recipe for years. My mom made quesadillas this way. At a restaurant I had vegetable chicken quesadillas, so now I add onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms after the chicken has cooked. I cook it until the onions are soft. Amazing!

Sound great! Do not use cooking spray! Just dribble in some olive oil. Great taste. No wasteful can of spray.

I just made this but tripled the recipe. As a result, the liquid did not evaporate as desired. I just made sure chicken was cooked through and then drained liquid into a bowl. Otherwise, I made as directed. Family really enjoyed!!! I served with Spanish rice and refried beans. Relatively quick and certainly easy.

It was a big hit with my family! I got the recipe off the back of a Ro*tel can because I wanted to make something a bit different and they loved it :D I served it with homemade refried beans (pinto beans heated and crushed, much better then anything at the store) and Mexican rice, delicious!

We had sooooo much Turkey after Thanksgiving and wanted to use the cooked bird chunks. I made this Quesadillas recipe (using turkey) at our Saturday Football watch party and it was a HIT! I warmed the turkey and Ro*Tel in a pan till evaporated.
