Easy Trader Joe's Meals - Chicken Quesadillas with Roasted Corn

... a continuation of my posts on easy meals made from ingredients found at Trader Joe's

Chicken Quesadillas with Roasted Corn
large tortillas (1 per quesadilla)
1 package shredded cheese
1 package Just Chicken (frozen)
1 package roasted corn (frozen)
1 jar chunky salsa

Heat chicken strips in microwave until just thawed (~2 min). Place tortilla on plate and cover one half of it with shredded cheese, thawed chicken, and roasted corn. Fold tortilla over and heat in microwave until cheese is melted (~2 min). Serve with salsa, sour cream, and/or Avocado's Number Guacamole.

TJ's has a variety of yummy salsas. The chunky salsa is a good basic salsa. The peach salsa is also very tasty. TJ's Guacamole is awesome! It's just as good as my homemade guac and a lot less work. It's packaged in two containers, so you can freeze half for later use. Instead of sour cream, we substitute non-fat plain yogurt. It's much healthier and tastes the same.

To turn this recipe into a burrito, add pre-cooked brown rice, diced tomatoes, and lettuce.
