Chicken Quinoa Quesadilla

Chicken Quinoa Quesadilla

The day after I made the chicken quinoa taco salad I made quesadillas with the leftovers.  Considering that the taco salad was acutally a leftover meal, that means that I got three completely different meals out of our chicken tacos.  That’s music to my ears for busy weekday dinners and lunches!

Use the corn or flour tortillas of your choice.  If I’m short on time and can’t make homemade tortillas {which seems to be the case these days!}, I like to buy corn and flour tortillas from a local taqueria so that my family can still enjoy homemade tortillas.  They really are more tender and flavorful than the generic supermarket varieties.  The same goes for our salsa verde and other salsas, when we don’t have our own we prefer the taqueria versions over supermarket brands.
