The bold flavors in this recipe make for one memorable meal. We chose a combination of pepper jack cheese, jalapeno pepper, chicken and avocado for our first quesadilla at bat... and it was a home run! Before serving, we added pepper jelly, salsa and sour cream to taste. De-lish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
