4. Heat a pan and place tortilla on it. Let it heat on one side and flip the tortilla to heat the other side.

Editors Review

If you are a busy mom, then it is the easiest process to serve some nutritious veggies in a delicious way to your kids. Kids normally don't like to eat vegetables, but if you hide the vegetables inside the quesadillas, they would never know what is inside. Rather they will enjoy the creamy and cheesy taste of quesadillas.

Wow! Was waiting for new updates from you and I must say that this broccoli chicken quesadillas are truly worth the wait. Unfortunately I do not have mozzarella cheese left in my refrigerator, so will any cheese variety do for this recipe? Do let me know as I am waiting to try this out! :) Thanks!
