Bek's Creamy Chicken Quesadillas
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
24 ingredients
8 servings
This is a Gatorbek original - I don't know if I've ever seen a quesadilla recipe that uses cottage cheese, but my whole family loves this one! Just watch how much you spoon in to the tortillas, because you don't want it running out the sides if you can help it. You may have some filling left over, but if I remember, it usually comes out about right. If you want to spice it up, feel free to add some diced jalapeno or habenero - I usually just let the sauce add the zip because of the kids. This is great as an appetizer or a main dish. Serve with Bek's Famous Pico De Gallo, maybe some guac and a dollop of sour cream. **As with many of my recipes, the amounts are approximate - I just chop and dump in the pan. If the directions are in any way unclear, please z-mail me... I hesitated to post this one because it exists in my recipe box as a jot list of ingredients and nothing more. Hope it made it out of my head clearly!
