these were great, i used turkey instead of chicken, and only green bell pepper, and butter instead of the pam spray, bring these babies up a notch by shaking on some grated parmesan cheese right after cooking, YUMMERZ!, CCheryl

I hate when others do this to my recipes but I'm gonna do it. Ur recipe was the backbone for what ultimately turned out to be THE BEST chicken quesadilla EVER! Here's what I did: I cooked the chicken in a couple tbl of butter and white pepper. When it was almost done I sprinkled a very scant amt of taco seasoning. And I mean very little. Then I added the onions and browned them. Then lastly the hot sauce and the peppers. I wanted the peppers to still have a crunch. Followed everything else but used jack cheese finely grated. SO GOOD! This is a keeper. Hubs LOVED it! Thank u!!
