2 tablespoons butter

2 cup shredded white cheese (Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack)
1 bunch fresh cilantro, stems removed and finely chopped.
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced – optional
Makes 4 Quesadillas
Add extra virgin olive oil and onion to large cold skillet. Heat over medium-high heat until onion becomes translucent, about 6 – 8 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 1 – 2 minutes or until it starts to turn brown.
Add shredded chicken to the pan and toss to coat in the seasonings. Turn heat to medium-low and simmer until any excess moisture is absorbed.
Remove from heat and keep warm.
Place butter in a clean skillet and heat over medium-high heat until melted. Swirl until bottom of pan is thoroughly covered.
Place one tortilla in pan. Top with ½ cup seasoned shredded chicken mixture and ½ cup shredded cheese. Add fresh cilantro and diced jalapeno peppers, if desired.
Distribute ingredients evenly and place second tortilla on top. Carefully flip once the bottom tortilla turns golden brown.
Once both sides are browned and cheese is melted, remove from heat and slice into 8 wedges. Serve immediate with fresh salsa, guacamole, sour cream or pico de gallo.
