How to Make It

Step 1

Top each of 4 tortillas with 1/2 cup cheese, 1/4 cup salsa, 1/4 cup chicken and 2 tablespoons green onions. Brush the edges of the tortillas with water. Top with the remaining tortillas and press the edges to seal.

Step 2

Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Brush the tops of the quesadillas with the oil. Place the quesadillas oil-side down on the grill rack. Brush the other side of the quesadillas with the oil. Grill for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted, turning the quesadillas over once halfway through the grilling time. Remove the quesadillas from the grill and let stand for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve with the remaining salsa and the sour cream.

    Prepare to make more than one serving; these are irresistible!

    For this recipe, I decided to use leftover grilled chicken from our Memorial Day cook-out. That gave the quesadillas that extra "grilled taste". And I added a little extra (sharp cheddar) cheese. I love to bite into something cheesy, when the cheese stretches with every bite! ;) My George Forman really came in handy, since I hardly ever use it!

    Very quick and delicious meal. Even my 6 year old liked it, without the salsa and green onions of course. I paired with Spanish rice and it was perfect. For added grilling taste I grilled the chicken I used in the quesadilla. I will definitely be making this dish again.

    This is so easy to do, it takes very little time for me to make. I use some pre-cooked chicken from the freezer or I buy pre-cooked chicken. In just a little time you have a whole meal.
