Here is a fast, easy way to make a great snack with chicken. Kids will like the cheesy goodness. Adults will love the pico de gallo (literally, "beak of the rooster." It is an excellent chunky salsa with the nutrients kicked way up by the black beans. I use a combination of butter and olive oil in a skillet to get the crispier exterior. If you like, you can spray each quesadilla with cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is melted, but this does not give the same crispness. Prep time includes 3 hours refigeration time for the pico.
