Last week I posted a YUMMY recipe for Honey-Lime Enchiladas that would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo, but if Enchiladas aren’t your “thing” you may like these Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas.
They are quick and easy……and not as spicy as the enchiladas…..so kids may enjoy this meal a little more.

We make these ALL the time!

EDITED to say this recipe WON
Tuesday Taste Peoples Choice Award
over at Crazy Daisy!!
