Directions

  1. Heat a skillet over low heat.
  2. Spread a small amount of butter evenly over one side of tortilla and place tortilla buttered side down in the skillet.
  3. For each tortilla, sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over 1/2 of the tortilla and top with chopped chilies, chicken, tomato, green onions, and cilantro.
  4. Fold the other side over the top and press down gently.
  5. Cook quesadilla over low heat 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.
  6. Remove quesadilla from skillet and keep warm on a plate in a low oven (300F).
  7. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  8. When finished, serve quesadillas cut in three sections (using a pizza cutter works great) and garnished with guacamole, sour cream and salsa, if desired.
