Quick Chicken Quesadilla

Bland.Is.Boring's picture
The beauty of quesadillas is that there are no rules for what goes in one! (Except for cheese – you skip the cheese and you’re dead to me. That’s the Queso in the Quesadilla for the love of God!) That’s what makes it a great dish for kids and generally anyone who hates rules. Different kinds of meat, no meat, fresh vegetables, cooked vegetables, of any variety…and even fruit in the case of these Mango and Roast Chicken Quesadillas!
