Chicken Quesadilla Dip

One of my favorite and not so healthy meals is chicken quesadillas.  For some reason I have never posted the recipe online.  I recently decided to make just the filling of the quesadillas as a dip for New Years Eve and it came out great!  No leftovers unfortunately though :(

-1 can of salsa (I use medium usually)
-1 bag of shredded Mexican cheese
-1 pound shredded cooked chicken (white meat)
-1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder depending on taste
-2 to 3 teaspoons fresh chopped cilantro depending on taste
-1/2 cup mayo

The mayo in this recipe really tones down the spiciness of the dish so if you like your food a little spicy don't be too nervous that you will add too much.  On the other hand, if you feel you added too much chili powder you can add more mayo to tone the flavor down.

Preheat over to 400 degrees.  Combine all ingredients in a bowl and spoon into an over safe casserole dish when combined.  Bake at 400 for approximately 10 minutes or until dip is bubbly.  Serve with tortilla chips.

If you would like quesadillas instead of dip - spoon this mixture into soft tortillas that have been buttered on the outside.  Arrange in a casserole dish and bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees or until tortillas begin to brown.
