Chicken Quesadillas

"This is a great recipe for parties. I freeze the leftovers; they reheat quite well. The zesty chicken and cooked peppers are a succulent delight when mixed with the melted cheeses. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa."

Here's the answer for crusty tortillas - wet them before baking.

My family loves these. I also had the soggy bottom problem, so I brush a little olive oil on the tortillas before I pop them in the oven. That makes them nice and crispy!

My family loved this recipe. I cooked the chicken first and then i cut into cubes it's much easier this way.

O MY this was great! I love quesadillas and it turned out just as described! One thing I did was use a little less fajita seasoning as too much overwhelms the mild taste of the cheese and green ...

Super good, but need to add a note for those using low-carb tortillas. These work so much better on a grill pan than baked in the oven. I've tried baking them in the oven with and without brushi...

Oh sooo yummy!! I love quesadillas and this was just a wonderful and simple recipe for them. I didn't use the full packet of the seasoning mix because I don't think I used as much chicken as t...
