"This is a great alternative to deep-fried jalapeno poppers that's much easier to make and healthier too. Slice into small wedges to use as an appetizer, or enjoy as light meatless Monday dinner."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Have been making quesadillas with these fillings for quite awhile but I LOVE your idea of buttering the grill sides of the tortillas and adding crushed tortilla chips! Am giving this recipe a four star but only because it's much more complicated than need be. You can simply place all the internal ingredients on one entire tortilla, top with the other tortilla (butter side up) then when time to turn just slide on to the plate you already planned to slice the quesadillas on, turn the skillet upside down over the plate and flip the plate and pan over to slide it back in the skillet and continue cooking the other side. Oh, and using sliced jalapenos from a jar saves the step of broiling the fresh jalapenos should you like to choose ;-)
I love the Concept of this recipe! But as written it just didnt work for me.I made these again today for my husband at lunch time and he LOVED them with some alterations!! First off I Doubled EVERYTHING!I made one for myself An even added some leftover thinly sliced chicken breast Absolutely TO DIE FOR!! With my changes a definite 5 STAR recipe!!! I didnt even have a chance to take a picture he ate them that fast..lol
These were just okay for me, although I love the idea. I doubled all of the other ingredients but used three tortillas. Even then I felt that the cream cheese was barely enough to cover. I might try again with some modifications. I think I expected ooey-gooey and you just don't get that with one tablespoon cream cheese and one-fourth cup shredded cheese on one ten-inch tortilla.
