    A tasty appetizer

    The photo is a bit deceiving. My tortilla did not get brown like you see in the picture. Does anyone have a recommendation for what I could spread on top to make it golden brown? I actually transferred mine to a pan and browned it for a few seconds on each side.

    Easy to assemble, fast and delicious!!

    The first time I try any recipe, I always follow it completely! This was very tasty just the way it is written! However, next time I make it, I will increase the chili powder and possibly try some jalapeño jack cheese.

    Monterey Jack Chicken Quesadillas

    My husband is a picky eater and he loves these quesadillas. They are very easy to make when you have to cook supper in a hurry.
