Chicken Quesadilla with Mango Salsa

This is one of Ashley’s favorite, she asks me to make it every so often on weekends. The mango salsa adds a fruity touch to the dish. It is a one-pan recipe. Thumbs up from the one who needs to wash dishes after the meal; only one-pan to wash :). I like it too because it is colorful and tasty!

  4. Spread a 1/3 cup of the shredded chicken over the cheese.
