Notes

***Use your own judgement regarding how much cheese, chicken, and pico to put on each quesadilla! The measurements are just estimates and I make each quesadilla different every time I do it. How's that for giving you accurate instructions?! Needless to say, there is no wrong way to make these. They will always taste ahhhhmazing!! Enjoy!
