This is one of my favorite dishes to make: chicken, mushroom, and Gruyere quesadillas. I found this recipe in my parents copy of Cooking Light from July 2009. Luckily, it is posted online here. The "burrito" sized tortillas that I found at the supermarket were just the right size, my roommate and I each got … Continue reading Fancy Quesadillas
