"This is one of my favorites because it is easy, fast and simple and versatile. If you like brown rice, I recommend using it in this and all recipes. It takes a bit longer to cook but is worth the wait, for both nutrition and taste. There is an instant brown rice on the market now, too."

I got this recipe from my sister and it has become a favourite dish for our family. It can be made with chicken or turkey - a GREAT recipe for leftovers.
I had some issues entering the ingredients, so I had to input 1 cup low fat cheddar cheese and 3 oz. low fat mozzarella cheese instead of 2 cups low fat marble cheese.
You can reduce the fat of this recipe by using low fat cream of chicken soup or no fat sour cream.
Enjoy!

Quesadilla Explosion Salad: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.2/5
(46 ratings)

Oh, Quesadilla Explosion Salad! How I love you!
I have eaten plenty of these at Chili's and was "Oh so surprised!" to see it listed as #2 on the 10 worst restaurant salads! Number T-O-O! Too much fat, Too many calories, Too many points!

It's a salad! How can it be so bad for you?

Something had to be done! This is my response. I have also created recipes for the various ingredients used in this salad. They are named as they appear in the list of ingredients. Feel free to use them or your own. Beware the nutrition data of this salad will change if you use another version.

Southwestern Eggrolls: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Winner
Very Good 4.4/5
(70 ratings)

I love Chili's Southwestern Eggrolls. They have so much tasty stuff in them, but I hate the fact they are deep fried. I added more beans and corn and then put them in the broiler for crunch.
These are great made ahead of time and *frozen for a quick meal or a fun snack for the big game. I make a double batch so I can freeze some for later.

Families have gone to war over chili recipes! I love a thick, meaty chili with loads of beans and vegetables. Thankfully my family agrees!
