Just remember that the chicken needs to marinate for 30 minutes, so plan accordingly if you are making them from scratch for dinner. 😉 The actual Chicken Fajita Quesadilla is so, so simple to prepare!

  1. Quesadillas are the best! So easy to make and I love to use leftovers to make. I see you are going to Blended and hope to meet you there! I missed meeting you at SoFab LA last year (that was so much fun) so I am going to find you at this conference!
