My husband loved these. We cooked them on our George Foreman grill in no time. You can't ask for a quicker, easier meal!

make sure to wet the flour totilla's a little, they'll steam on the grill and won't burn as easy!!! enjoy.

These are absolutly amazing! My family can't get enough of them. I like mine without the chicken (veggie) and they're still great. I use my George Forman for them and then come out crisp and delicious!

An excellent use for the barbecue! I added some yellow corn to mine...

this is a quick recipe except for getting the grill ready. really fast if you own a gas grill. Makes a lot of servings. Could upgrade to using chicken breasts and guacamole.

This is a great recipe for leftover chicken. I found it a little too bland for my taste but did add additional spices the second time to my own tastes. This is a great recipe if you do buffet type meals or want something that doesn't take a lot of thought.

I loved grilling quesadillas on the grill. I used boneless chicken breast. My kids don't enjoy spicy foods that much, so next time I will use just plain chicken on theirs.
