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!
GOOD RECIPE, I added qucamole and used my george foreman
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.
