Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas

This recipe is from "Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone" and it seriously is the yummiest easiest recipe. I did have pictures of this HOWEVER my laptop had crashed and my hard drive was replace....equalling no pictures. Hope you enjoy these!

Four 10-inch flour tortillas

2 cups coarsely shredded roasted chicken

2 cups grated monterey jack cheese

1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

1 jalapeno, finely chopped


1/4 cup barbeque sauce

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Arrange tortillas on a work surface. Divide chicken, cheese, cilantro, and jalapeno among the tortillas, scattering the ingredients over half of each tortilla. Sprinkle with salt (i didn't actually do this when I made them) and drizzle a tbsp of bbq sauce over each. Fold the uncovered half of each tortilla over the filling to form a half-moon shape.

Heat a large flad griddle pan over medium heat. Place 2 quesadillas on the griddle. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Cute quessadillas into wedges and serve.

Now I didn't use the BBQ sauce recipe in his cookbook because I was short on time and ingredients but these turned out great with the store bought sauce I used. These are a great movie snack or dinner.
