Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla
This easy recipe is a great way to use leftover chicken. But if you need to cook some chicken for this recipe, use boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced into small pieces, and quickly fried over medium heat in a sauté pan or heavy skillet.

- 2 large flour tortillas
- ½ cup chipotle Cheddar cheese, grated
- ½ cup cooked chicken, chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh jalapeños, finely chopped

On a griddle or the flat of a large skillet, heat tortillas until they are piping hot.
