  • I LOVE these things! I typically use pickled jalapenos instead of green chili's but that's a personal preference. I'll also use any type of shredded cheese I have on hand. The new Kraft cheese with Philadelphia cream cheese is GREAT but not very calorie friendly! lol - 12/12/10

  • My family really liked this recipe. I used fat free tortillas and fat free sour cream. For my own plate I left off the sour cream and salsa bringing my calories down to 284 for 1 quesadilla. My husband and kids loved the sour cream and salsa with it. I will definately make this recipe again. - 9/23/09
