    Made these quesadillas into a meal using asparagus and last nights eggplant parmigiana and cheddar, instead of goats cheese.  -  12 Apr 2009

    These were delicious - but I made a couple of changes. I used crumbled garlic & herb feta instead of goat cheese and I also added some shredded Italian-blend cheese. Additionally, I sauteed 2 cloves of chopped garlic with the asparagus. I substituted green onions for the cilantro as well. Will definitely make again!  -  30 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    These were great! I actually used some flour and some whole wheat tortillas and served them as an appetizer at a party. I also made the Zesty Black Bean Quesadillas With Cilantro Sour Cream from this site and the Colantro Sour Cream tasted really good with these quesadilla as well. Very easy to make.  -  18 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
