"I came up with this recipe on a whim. I love quesadillas, but am picky about what goes in them. This was super easy to make and tasted really good. Serve as is or with salsa and sour cream."

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir chicken, 1 packet sazon seasoning, and 1 teaspoon garlic salt, shredding chicken as it cooks until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Bring rice and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Stir black beans, 1 packet sazon seasoning, and teaspoon garlic salt together in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in microwave until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add black bean mixture to rice.
  4. Place each tortilla on a work surface; layer half of each tortilla with bean-rice mixture, Mexican cheese, shredded chicken, and more Mexican cheese. Fold each tortilla in half. Spread a thin layer of softened butter atop each quesadilla.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook each quesadilla, butter-side down, until cheese is melted and outside is crisp and brown, about 5 minutes per side. Cut into wedges.

Easy? Too many ingredients to be called easy. I'm sure it is good but doesn't fill my search for easy quesadilla.

These were really good! I think you could also roll this up burrito style and maybe add some salsa and sour cream inside. Will make this again for a nice lunch!

It was delicious! I made it for my family and everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely making these again!

This is an easy recipe to prepare and the flavors meld to make a great dish.
