A simple yet delectable cheesy dish.


1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon pickled jalapeño peppers, chopped
1 cup cooked chicken, chopped
4 flour tortillas

Sour cream, for garnish
3/4 cup salsa, for garnish

  3. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray.
  4. Place a quesadilla in the pan and cook for two minutes on each side or until they are a nice golden brown. Repeat.
  5. Cut each quesadilla in half. Serve with the salsa and, if you like, a dollop of sour cream
