Party time? Start with tasty apps from the grill. They're easy to prep and ready in minutes.
Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch; from 11-oz package)
cup reduced-fat cream cheese spread with roasted garlic (from 8-oz container)
to 3 plum (Roma) tomatoes, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
cup shredded cooked chicken
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
cup crumbled feta cheese (2 oz)
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Cucumber slices, if desired
Sliced ripe olives, if desired
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray 2 (30x18-inch) pieces of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray. For each quesadilla, place 1 tortilla on foil; spread with 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese. Top with half each of the tomatoes, chicken, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese and parsley. Top with another tortilla.
Wrap foil securely around tortillas; pierce top of foil packet once or twice with fork to vent steam. Place foil packets, seam side up, on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 minutes. Turn packets over. Cover grill; cook about 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
Cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges. Top with cucumber slices and olives; secure with toothpicks.
If roasted garlic cream cheese is not available, use 1/4 cup regular cream cheese and stir in 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder.
For a tasty meatless appetizer, omit the chicken.
One jar (6 oz) marinated artichoke hearts, well drained and sliced, can be added to the quesadillas with the chicken.
