Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie

This Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla Pie is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

A simple meal that saves you time by using a rotisserie chicken.  Of course, if you have leftover chicken on hand, that would work too.

Another time saver here is that you are using a flour tortilla for a crust.  This saves you the time consuming process of making your own crust while adding a Spanish flare to this dish.

Kids and adults alike love this Quesadilla Pie, give it a try!
