Chicken and Three Cheese Quesadillas

We love these quesadillas in our house..We have these about every two weeks…even my kids LOVE them. When I find a recipe that my kids like and eat with no complaints well its a keeper for me:)) The best part is that they are so simple and very quick to make..


Spread butter over one side of each tortilla. Spread cream cheese over the unbuttered side. Sprinkle with cooked chicken, shredded Cheddar cheese, shredded Monterey jack cheese, thinly sliced green onions, fresh minced cilantro, and chopped ripe olives.  Top with remaining tortilla, and butter that side.

Cook on griddle over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges. Serve with salsa and sour cream if desired.
