This is my first one!!

1.5 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (2.99)
1 can mild cheese sauce (2.44)
12 small sound flour tortillas ($1.25)
shredded mexican cheese,1/2 bag ($0.95)
sour cream ($.89)
1 can refried beans ($0.99)
1 small bag Mexican rice ($1.25)
jell-o flan mix ($.99)
1 cup of milk (for the pudding) (~$0.30)

Total cost $9.06!!!

Cut up the chicken breast into short strips and cook in a pan.
Spread a little of the spicy cheese sauce on half of each tortilla,
place a few pieces of the cooked chicken on top of the cheese sauce,
cover the chicken with the shredded mexican cheese, fold tortilla in
half and place on a griddle, in a pan on the stove, or in the oven.

Cook until the tortilla is lightly brown and the shredded cheese is melted. Put the remainder of the cheese sauce in a little bowl, put some sour cream in a little bowl and use those for "dipping" sauces for the quesadilla.

The quesadillas are usually enough for my family but if your family likes a biger meal then add the rice as a side as well as the refried beans. Just microwave them for a minute and a half or so. Also, if you prefer a dessert as well, I would make a flan or any pudding to go with it!! You can buy the jell-o brand flan at your local grocer and it is yummy!!! Not quite Authentic Mexican but pretty close!!!
