BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

BBQ chicken quesadilla

BBQ Chicken + Melted Cheese + Tortillas = Deliciousness :)

This is a great weeknight dish.  Everyone will love it and it’s so quick and easy.  There are a lot of ways you can be creative with this too.  You can add some black beans, also when I have leftover pulled pork or smoked brisket, I will  make quesadillas with that.  It’s the same process, cheese on bottom and top to hold it together and add whatever else you like (or have on hand) to the middle.  Be creative!
