    This has become a favorite meal. It is super easy and full of flavor. I agree that medium heat should be used because the tortillas tend to brown too quickly before the inside has time to melt. I serve with a side of guacamole to round out the meal.

    I added tomato and it was very very good!

    We love these! I add a couple of cups of fresh baby spinach to the mix. I agree about using medium heat, and I cook them in a grill pan, using a small cast-iron pan to weight them. Makes those nice browned grill marks on the tortillas.

    I cooked 1 lb chicken in taco seasoning mix, and added a can each of black beans and corn (to serve 5). I also used mild banana peppers instead of jalapeño. Was so easy, will definitely be in my regular rotation. I served with fresh guacamole and salsa. Huge hit!

    I had to make a few changes based on what I had on hand, but I still thought these were really good. I used multi-grain tortillas. I didn't have green onions so substituted finely chopped yellow onion. No cilantro so I used a bit of fresh oregano. I would definitely make these again. Next time though, my daughter asks for no jalapeno so I will use diced mild green chilies instead.

    These are delicious and easy to prepare. Loved the pop from the pickled jalapenos. Used all of the listed ingredients and added some black beans. Put the salsa inside the quesadillas. Will definitely make again.

    Easy and tasty lunch. I used leftover grilled pork and mixed everything together including some salsa and the cheese. Since I use a double sided griddle, I sprayed the tortillas with cooking spray first, then spread the mixture on a tortilla and topped with another tortilla. In two minutes, they were ready! Cut with a pizza cutter. The cilantro makes the difference in this recipe, so be sure to use it.
