If you are on the hunt for real easy recipes this one is a winner! These chicken and cheese quesadillas are so simple to make.
This is perfect for a busy week night when you need to get dinner on the table fast.
I used a rotisserie chicken and shred it up to make the prep even easier.
I also used refrigerated tortillas. Have you ever tried them? So fresh and delicious! They taste like you made them from scratch.
- 8-10 refrigerated tortillas (you could also use pre-cooked tortillas they just taste more processed to me)
- 2 c shredded cooked chicken (use a rotisserie chicken to save time)
- 2 c shredded cheddar cheese
- toppings like: sour cream, salsa, guacamole, etc
Over a medium heat, lightly brown each side of the tortilla.
Add a handful of shredded cheese to the tortilla.
On top of the cheese add a handful of shredded chicken.
Fold the tortilla over and press with a spatula to seal well.
Cook the tortilla for 1 minute on each side, being sure not to burn the tortilla but to also melt the cheese.
Plate it up and top as you please.
I like to cut the tortilla in half to make it easier for the kids to manage.
We served it with Puerto Rican Rice which I started before I started the quesadillas and then once the quesadillas were done the rice was done too.
