Chicken Quesadillas

For a really quick dinner the other night, I threw together some quesadillas and served them with chips and homemade salsa.  These quesadillas are simple and delicious!

The sky is the limit when choosing your fillings, so go ahead and adapt to your taste even if that means a simple cheese quesadilla.


Here’s how I made them:

Chicken Quesadillas

{serves 2}


1 tablespoon oil

1.5 cups chicken, cooked and chopped or shredded

taco seasoning & water if needed

1 small onion, chopped

3 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

2 cups cheddar cheese, grated


4 flour tortillas


Lightly butter one side of each flour tortilla and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and saute the onions and peppers until tender, just a minute or two.  Then add the cooked chicken and heat through.  Season with taco seasoning.

Meanwhile, heat a griddle or grill pan over medium heat.  Place one tortilla on the pan with the butter side down, and spread 1/2 cup cheese on top.  Then, place one quarter of the meat mixture over the cheese.  Allow the cheese to melt, but don’t over brown the tortilla.  Once cheese is melted, fold in half and remove.  Repeat with remaining 3 tortillas.


Once all tortillas are made, slice each one into 3 triangles.

Serve with salsa and sour cream on the side.
