“Heres my quesadilla. I am not even that sure of how to spell it, but it works. These quesadillas are really good. I eat these whenever I come home from school sometimes and I do not have time to grill some chicken or something like that to eat. They are popular with my mom and my sister. They love to eat them, the problem is is that I always have to make them. lol. I hope you like them. These quesadillas may get messy. So sometimes you have to eat them with a fork. But I still LOVE them. These are also low fat. They are made with fat free mayonnaise and cheeses which doesn't seem to take away any flavor. Or thats my opinion. Light cheeses and mayonnaise can be used as well. I made this recipe up all by myself using my tuna salad recipe and adding shredded cheese. Quesadillas are popular in this house, we eat ham quesadillas, to grilled chicken quesadillas and this happens to be my favorite.”
