My daughter Hope (hence the title) was visiting from FL and we had a lot of kids (at my daughters here in SC) so she made her version of Chicken Quesadillas. Every kid in the house was begging her to make them. I am not a quesadilla fan so I was iffy about them. But, I ended up begging her for the recipe after tasting them. And here we are. My husband even loved it too. The chicken mixture itself is very spicy but once you put it in the shell and add the cheese it does take the spicy down. So when making it you should make your decision based on your spicy likes. Hope you like it.

    Cut chicken in small bite size chunks. Fry slowly in your choice of butter or oil. I like butter.
  • 2
    Place chicken in a sauce pan and add cream of chicken soup. Do not add any milk or water.
  • 3
    Chop all vegetables and sauté them in the chicken pan. Until slightly softened. I use fresh mushrooms so I sauté them longer. I season both the chicken and the vegetables as I fry/sauté them. When adding jalapeños add to your taste. We like spicy.

    Add the vegetables to the chicken and stir and let simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Flour tortilla with chicken and spicy sauce. Covered with white sharp cheddar cheese.
    Place a small amount of the chicken mixture in each tortilla sprinkle the cheese over the chicken. And fold the tortilla over top.

    Brush the top with garlic butter. I sprinkle some Parmesan cheese. Place in preheated 375* oven and bake for about 15 minutes. The top will start browning a little.
