Let's Make It
Preheat broiler. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat on medium heat. Add chicken and chili powder; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add corn and 2 Tbsp. of the salsa; cook and stir 3 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce is thickened.
Spray tops of 4 of the tortillas with cooking spray. Place, sprayed sides down, on large foil-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with half of the cheese; top with chicken mixture, remaining cheese and remaining tortillas. Spray tops of tortillas with cooking spray.
Broil, 4 to 5 inches from heat, 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn quesadillas over with large spatula; continue broiling an additional 3 minutes or until second side is golden brown and cheese is melted. Cut each into 4 wedges. Serve with the remaining salsa.
Serve these main-dish quesadillas with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing.
This is a great use for leftover cooked turkey. Just substitute 1 cup chopped cooked turkey for the chicken. Mix with chili powder, corn and 2 Tbsp. of the salsa in skillet; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Continue as directed.
