Chicken Quesadilla

                                                   Chicken Quesadilla

I recently traveled to Northport, AL to attend Julie Horsley and Brad Mason's wedding.  Julie is my bestest friend's baby girl.  I was invited to come a few days early to help with the wedding.  I felt so honored to be included in pre-wedding activities.  It has been said that I was GeorgeAnn's Valium since I have such a calming demeanor!  

We went out to eat the first night I was in town at a Mexican restaurant near their home called Jalapeno's.  There was an incredible aroma from the dishes being served to other customers at the restaurant.  I decided to have Chicken Quesadilla and it was the best quesadilla that I had ever tasted.  GeorgeAnn asked if I had ever made quesadilla's at home and when I told her no she said that we would have them at her house one night.  The next night, we had quesadilla's at her house and I knew I had a new recipe that I would be cooking at my house and sharing on my blog.  I hope you like this one as much as I did!

Add all ingredients that you choose to add to your quesadilla and then fold over the other side of the quesadilla.  You are now ready to enjoy a delicious Chicken Quesadilla.

You may cook 6 chicken breasts and a whole packet of Taco Seasoning for a family.
