Quesadilla Pie

It's a casserole. It's a pie. It's really, really good.

By The Kids Cook Monday / Community Table

From The Kids Cook Monday, “Kids will have fun arranging the layers of rotisserie chicken, tortillas, salsa, spinach and cheddar cheese to create this double-decker casserole. Whole-wheat tortillas and spinach give the pie a heartier texture, not to mention a healthy dose of fiber and vitamin C.”

Rusty, another solution would be to just highlight for copying only the recipe area of the web page (usually it works best if you start at the bottom and scroll up before selecting Copy), then select Print and in the Print Options select "Print Selection." Your printer may have slightly different wording for the options, but the Selection option should prevent anything further from printing.

Hi Rustyj,

We've been having some issues with the print button, and are looking into fixing them fast. In the meantime, I would suggest cutting and pasting the recipe into a Word Document, which should fix all the issues. Thanks very much for writing, and I hope you're having a great New Year.

Take care,
Kris, Food Editor

There have been many times that I would like to try one of the recipes you offer.....................but when I click on print I get not only the recipe but other things like ads, or other grand parent things. What am I doing wrong?
