Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas

Make quesadillas that are fun and healthy.

Quesadillas are fun to make and delicious too. They're highly versatile—you can use different proteins (pork, beef, chicken, beans, or lentils) and cheese, use the tortillas you like best, and add extra of your favorite vegetables. Kids and adults both love them, and they can be excellent for using leftovers to make a new, fast meal.

This is a recipe for a delicious, unique quesadilla. You can switch it up and use a different protein too.
