Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla

I feel like these chicken and cheese quesadillas could possibly solve all of the world’s problems. It definitely solves all of my problems on a rough day. There is just something so comforting about a hot cheesy filled tortilla. Add in some chicken and you’ve got a full rounded meal for lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack! Sometimes we even make these as little appetizers for dinner parties or game day watching! Cut them into little bit sized triangles and they will be devoured in minutes!

There is something you need to know- these aren’t just any chicken quesadillas. These quesadillas have a secret magic yummy sauce in the middle that take these to another level. Who knew that a little mayo, taco seasoning, and hot sauce could be the winning combo for a quesadilla sauce. YUM!

How to make Chicken Quesadillas

I just love how easy these are to make. Perfect for when you can’t decide what to have for dinner that day. I told you these quesadillas are your answer to anything!

You’ll need about 2 cups of shredded seasoned chicken for this recipe. We love to use homemade tortillas (once you go homemade you never go back) for our quesadillas but any tortillas you have will be great. Whisk together the taco seasoning, mayo, hot sauce, and garlic salt in a bowl. Spread the mixture onto one side of a tortilla. Add your desired amount of shredded chicken and cheese to the tortilla. Add a layer of the sauce onto another tortilla and place that on top.

Cook your quesadilla in the microwave first for about 20 seconds. This will help the cheese get extra melty. Then place the quesadilla in a pan on the stove until it gets brown and crispy.
