    Just made this but also added black beans, corn, and seasoned with cumin, chipolte and a little taco seasoning. Used olive oil instead of spray.....big hit with the family!!

    Tasty, quick and simple. Substituted finely sliced pork sirloin for chicken. On the tortilla, I spread thin layers of refried black beans and sour cream, along with chopped raw tomatillo. After adding the tomato and pork mixture, I rolled and folded these like a burrito, crisped them in the frying pan and called it supper. Good stuff!

    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!
