    •    Chopped Onions - Red or Maui are the recommended.

    •    Chicken Strips  - Chicken in chili?  We say yes!
    •    Canned Corn - Adds a sweet crunch.
    •    Chocolate Chips - They make everything better, right?  Maybe not.

Cheesy Quesadilla

Take a large flour tortilla, add shredded cheeses, cover with another large flour tortilla and heat. Top with avocado, tomatoes and sour cream.

  •     Apples - Yes, cheese and apples together are yummy!   
  •     Corn – More of that crunchy sweet taste we mentioned before.
  •     Lettuce – Not as sweet as corn, but just as crunchy.
