Fiesta BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

(Last Updated On: August 18, 2020)

Quesadillas are always a hit! With this simple recipe, just mix the ingredients, place in tortillas and bake. It’s that easy! Short on time? Use a rotisserie chicken. Top with fresh cilantro for extra flavor.

Nutrition Tip: Beans are rich in fiber, which is great for health–but as the famous “magical fruit” saying goes, that fiber can also make you toot. Rinsing canned beans before using them (and dumping water from soaking dry beans) can help reduce their gas potential.
