Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas

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… kids may enjoy this meal a little more.

We make these ALL the time!

EDITED to say this recipe WON

  2. In a skillet, heat chicken.
  3. Add taco seasoning, mix with water according to package
  4. Brush one side of each tortilla with melted butter; place buttered side down on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  5. Spoon 1/4 of chicken mixture over half of each tortilla
  6. Sprinkle each with 1/3 cup cheese
  7. Fold tortilla over chicken and cheese.
  8. Bake at 475 for 10 mins.

We like to open ours and add lettuce and sour cream, or dunk in ranch dressing.
