    Very good and easy! Added mexican corn and cumin. Homemade guacamole was the perfect finishing touch.

    Turned out pretty good, my husband and one year old liked it. Only notable difference: I cooked chicken breasts in homemade fajita seasoning before making the quesadilla itself. The chicken was cooked on the stovetop Highly recommend adding whatever seasoning you like.

    “Best” is a pretty strong claim. “Basic and Unremarkable” is a better descriptor. This recipe is fine, but it has very little flavour (there is no seasoning after all) and the filling amount needs to be doubled at least. There have to be better quesadilla recipes out there.

    loved it!! easy meal
    Really good, used some of the salsa as part of the stack, will add grilled onions next time for a bit more flavor!!! Thank you!

    Quick and easy but a little flavorless were it not for the guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. Next time I think I’ll try to season the chicken a little more and really load on the cheese.

    Simple and very yummy! I used slow cooker pulled chicken thighs with a packet of taco seasoning. Cast iron skillet is perfect to get crisp tortillas. Definitely in the rotation. Thanks for the recipe!
