Ingredients:  
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot sauce
4 8-inch flour tortillas
1 or 2 jalapeņo peppers, seeded and chopped

Directions:

Combine the cream cheese and hot sauce in a small bowl until creamy. Lay the tortillas on a flat surface and divide the cream cheese mixture between them. Spread over the entire surface to within 1/2-inch of the edge.

Combine the jalapeņos, tomato, scallions and cilantro in a separate bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange a portion evenly over half of each tortilla and top with about 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese. Add a portion of chicken and top with the remaining pepper jack. Fold the tortillas in half.

Brush a heavy skillet with a thin coating of vegetable oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook the quesadillas, one at a time until the cheese melts and the tortillas are golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Brush the skillet with more oil as needed. Allow the quesadillas to cool for about 3 minutes before cutting into wedges. Serve with sour cream for dipping.
