AMAZING !! I love Mexican food, and this just hit my taste buds in the right place =D The only thing is that I added a little bit of red onions and mixed peppers to the quesadillas, and a bit more cheese, I'm a cheese lover - 04 Sep 2013


I LOVED these,as did my hubby,they tasted good and they weren't too spicy,just how i like them!I added 4 tbsp of salsa instead of just 2 tbsp to add a bit extra flavour!I also served them with some soured cream!I will definitely be making these again! - 23 May 2012
