Delicious Recipe- Vegetarian Option Too!

Absolutely love this recipe. It has all of the right elements. I also think it is very important when buying products such as corn, or other farm fresh produce, that you always look for local products! It's great to support your local farms, as well as your state! This recipe allows for many fresh ingredients that I could go pick up at the farmers market which I love. Additionally: If you wanted to lower your environmental impact even more, consider making this into a Vegetarian dish! I just tried it and it works very well.  Thanks for the great recipe!Cheers.

Love these for an easy, weeknight meal and easily adaptable to what you have on hand (if you choose) or exactly as written.

We like these occasionally - a great way to use up some left over roasted chicken. Makes for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. We usually have this with some cubed avocado and a side of fruit.

This is very tasty. Quick and easy to make for a weeknight supper. I put a little extra salsa in the mix to make it easier to spread.

This is a favorite go-to on nights that I really don't have time to cook. So easy and very tasty.

These were delicious. I agree with another reviewer, that the filling was not quite enough for 4 quesadillas. I found the serving size just right.

One of our all-time favorite meals. I also make it with shrimp in place or along with the chicken. I am a non-cook, but I can make this recipe easily and quickly.

These were okay, nothing to write home about. I've had better quesadillas.

This was amazing. I found there was plenty to fill four quesadillas. I guess if you're using bigger tortillas than six inches it wouldn't be enough, but I found it to be plenty. super easy, super delicious : )

AMAZING! I made it without the black beans and corn and it was still delicious.
