Speedy chicken and corn quesadilla

    15 min

    I needed to go shopping so created a speedy quesadilla based on what I had available in my fridge/freezer and larder. The result is a tasty, spicy quesadilla filled with chicken, corn, jalapenos and cheese. Serve topped with guacamole and soured cream or on its own.
