One Great Recipe and a Call for More!

Today I am trying to get my grocery list together and had a great idea. Instead of searching online like I usually do, I thought I'd try the blogging world since I'd rather have your recommendations than on-line mystery cooks. :) So my great idea is that I post a great recipe and then you post one for me in the comment section. The sharing of good dinners will abound without anyone having to print a RS cookbook. If this works I post more recipes periodically. And please comment if you try our recipe and like it, feedback is fun!

Our latest family favorite is Apple Quesadillas. They are super easy, the recipe makes a lot, and delicious. Ryan loves them and requests them all the time.


  • 2 medium tart apples, sliced
  • 1 cup diced, cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup shredded fat free Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 (8 inch) (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 3/4 cup shredded lettuce
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • 6 tablespoons fat free sour cream


  1. In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Place about 3/4 cup on half of each tortilla. Fold tortilla in half over filling and secure with toothpicks. Place on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. ( I cook mine on an electric skillet, works pretty well for me)
  2. Carefully turn quesadillas over; bake 5-8 minutes longer or until golden. Discard toothpicks. Cut each quesadilla into three wedges; serve with lettuce, salsa and sour cream.
Hope you like them! And PLEASE post your rave review recipe!
