Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
4 servings
Tasty tortillas filled with chicken, spring onions and goats' cheese or, for a milder cheese flavouring, replace the tangy goats' cheese with ricotta cheese or any other soft cheese. Served with avocado and garlic dip, diced cucumber and tomatoes, these are ideal for a light meal or a supper snack. Tortillas have been a staple of the Mexican diet since the time of the Aztecs. I have adapted this recipe, from an International Masters '1001 recipes for pan or wok' recipe card, and posted it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. 350g = 12 ounces; 175g = 6 ounces.
