Spicy Chicken Quesadillas

Yum! I love Mexican food right down to the basic chips and salsa. I'm always looking for a new recipe to make for mexican night at home like the next person. So here's a yummy recipe that can also be kid-friendly if you omit the pickled jalapeƱos of course! Grab an alread made rotisserie chicken from the market and whip these up on a work night!

1 cup chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
1/3 cup refrigerated fresh salsa
1/4 cup canned no-salt-added black brand rinsed and drained
1/4 cup of frozen corn, thawed
1 1/2 tbsp chopped picked jalapeƱo pepper
8 flour tortillas (GO HEALTHY and buy the whole wheat instead.)
1 cup reduced fat Monterey jack cheese
Cooking spray
1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Divide chicken mixture evenly over 4 tortillas. Sprinkle quesadillas evenly with cheese. Top with remaining 4 tortillas.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 1 quesadilla to pan, cook 1 minute on each side or until golden.
Remove from pan, repeat with remaining quesadillas. Serve with sour cream.
