Trader Joe's Southwest Style Chicken Quesadillas Chef Dolores picked up packages of Trader Joe's Southwest Style Chicken Quesadillas for our lunch at home. We enjoyed them and will get them again. We found a great supplier in Los Angeles who begins with a flour tortilla filled with queso—specifically, Monterey Jack and Pepper Jack. Chunks of white-meat chicken (seasoned with onion, garlic, and sea salt) combine forces with the gooey cheese to create a savory flavor sensation, which also delivers 23g of protein per single Quesadilla.More tasty and textural interest is added by black beans and a variety of veggies, including corn, spinach, red bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers. Finally, a handful of seasonings (cilantro, paprika, cumin...), along with a quick grilling, give our new South...
