Grilled Chicken Quesadilla

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mexican food. Quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas, and burritos are regular meals every week. I top these grilled chicken quesadillas with lots of sour cream, guacamole and salsa. These are a really fast dinner if you already have leftover chicken prepared, and also make a great appetizer!
