I wish this picture did this dish justice, because this was delicious and easy. My favorite combination. Unfortunately, the family unit was starving, so I barely had time to snap a quick pic. Quesadillas are not the most challenging dishes to make, but delish sure did pull together the right combination of veggies, spices and cheese. Happy Cinco de Mayo indeed! 👩🏻‍🍳. https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/recipes/a54465/easy-chicken-quesadilla-recipe/. Chicken Quesadillas
