I FOUND THIS RECIPE FROM ONE OF MY FRIENDS BLOGS, I HAVEN'T TRIED IT BUT I THOUGHT IT SOUNDED GOOD....

Fresh Papaya and Chicken Quesadillas

If you're nervous about how papaya and chicken might taste together surrounded by a love bed of cheese--don't be. It's terrific, take my word for it. The papaya gives it a sweet and tropical flavor that is a little different but nothing to fear.

With the chicken in there, these quesadillas are much more than just an appetizer, these are officially a Healthy Main Dish. From henceforth and forever. Because I say so.

8 large flour tortillas
2 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 chicken breasts, grilled and thinly sliced
1/3 cup of red onion, finely diced
1 papaya, seeded and thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh, chopped cilantro
1 1/2 cups of fresh spinach leaves, coarsely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray
sour cream
salsa

Lay out four of the tortillas and divide the ingredients among them in this order: first the cheese, then the chicken, onion, papaya, cilantro and spinach. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with the remaining four quesadillas. Grill lightly in a frying pan coated with non-stick spray. After lightly browning both sides and melting the cheese, remove from pan and cut each quesadilla into quarters and top with a dollop of sour cream and 2 tablespoons of fresh tomato salsa if desired.
