Ranchero Chicken Quesadillas

Quesadillas filled with warm, tasty cheese is one of the most popular new snacks found in restaurants, pubs and family eateries everywhere. With the right ingredients, they are very easy to make at home. I've added chicken to the usual cheese to give this dish a little more protein and a good dollop of Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce which I think you will find is a lot more satisfying that salsa from a jar.

Ranchero Chicken Quesadillas
1 16 oz jar Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce or your favorite enchilada sauce
2 cups chopped or shredded baked or roasted chicken
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
8 whole wheat or regular flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack of cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream

1. Warm the jar of Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce or your favorite enchilada sauce in a medium cooking pot.
2. Mix the chicken and half of the sauce and cook until thoroughly warmed.
3. Warm a large skillet over medium heat and lightly coat it with vegetable oil.
4. Place a tortilla in the skillet, spoon a portion of Larry's Ranchero Sauce and chicken over the tortilla. Sprinkle cheese over that and cover with another tortilla.
5. Cook the quesadilla for 2 to 3 minutes, flip it over and cook for another 2 to three minutes. Repeat.
6. Remove the quesadillas from the skillet, cut into four sections each and serve with the sour cream and the remaining Larry's Ranchero Sauce.
Serves 4.
