Important Notes: Keto Chicken Avocado Quesadilla
1 To make things even easier, make a big batch of tortillas and store them in the freezer for later use. Just remember to layer them with parchment paper to prevent sticking & allow them to thaw at room temperature before assembling your quesadilla. It’s a quick and tasty meal that is perfect for any time of day!
2 When making a cheesy tortilla, It is important to leave some space around the edges. This is because as the cheese melts, it will spread outwards & potentially spill over the sides. By leaving a bit of space, you can ensure that you don’t lose any of that delicious melted cheese.
