Using a small amount
of olive oil, fry each side of tortillas in skillet, then
place on a cookie sheet. Top four tortillas with 1/4 cup cheese,
1/4 of the chicken mixture, 1/4 of the tomato mixture, topping
with 1/4 cup of cheese and second tortilla. Press gently and
place in ziploc freezer bag or wrap for the freezer.
On cooking day:
Preheat oven to 375F. Do not thaw! Simply place the quesadillas
on the cookie sheet straight from the freezer, and bake for
15-20 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Cut into wedges
(pizza cutter works best) and serve with salsa, guacamole
and/or sour cream.
