Chicken-Chile Quesadillas

This is our favorite new recipe . . . it's one of those that is quick and easy, perfect for those nights when you have no idea what to make for dinner.

1 package flour tortillas for burritos
2 cups finely shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 cups shredded or finely chopped cooked chicken
1 can chopped green chiles
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 cup salsa

1. Top one half of each tortilla with cheese, chicken and green chiles. Fold other half of each tortilla over filling; press down with back of pancake turner. Lightly brush melted butter on both sides of each filled tortilla.

2. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook 2 filled tortillas at a time 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until golden brown and hot. Cut into wedges. Serve with salsa.

Another idea: add chopped or sliced olives, chopped onions, peppers, etc.

This is a great dinner. We had it this week with chicken and chilies for the first time. Wish I had thought of brushing the tortillas with butter though. That's genius! Thanks Carol!!
