These are absolutly amazing! My family can't get enough of them. I like mine without the chicken (veggie) and they're still great. I use my George Forman for them and then come out crisp and delicious! Read More

this is a quick recipe except for getting the grill ready. really fast if you own a gas grill. Makes a lot of servings. Could upgrade to using chicken breasts and guacamole. Read More

This is a great recipe for leftover chicken. I found it a little too bland for my taste but did add additional spices the second time to my own tastes. This is a great recipe if you do buffet type meals or want something that doesn't take a lot of thought. Read More

I loved grilling quesadillas on the grill. I used boneless chicken breast. My kids don't enjoy spicy foods that much so next time I will use just plain chicken on theirs. Read More

Loved this! I couldn't find that adobo seasoning. I was doing these for a crowd so I cooked my chicken ahead with a little olive oil and spiced it up. Then I did use chopped jalapeno's...I also made a spicy sour cream from another recipe...1 cup sourcream 1/4 cup chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and 1/2 lime juice. it was awesome! my group raved! will make again...
