  • 1 15-ounce can Rotel diced tomatoes (mild or medium)
  • 1 4-ounce can diced green chiles
  • 2 cups shredded mexican style cheese

  2. Remove lid from slow cooker, use 2 forks to shred chicken breasts. Stir all ingredients until creamy.

  3. Pre-heat a large greased pan or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle 1 tortilla evenly with shredded cheese. Spread chicken mixture evenly on top of cheese. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top of the chicken mixture. Top with a second tortilla. 

  4. Cook the quesadilla over medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted. (*see note) Repeat process with remaining tortillas, cheese, and chicken mixture.
