Hello, sweet friends!  Chicken Quesadillas are one of my FAVORITE ‘go to’ recipes.  They are also on my top ten list of comfort foods.

There’s just something about that spicy chicken-bubbling cheese, and crispy tortilla-that makes a person feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Don’t you agree?

And let’s not forget the toppings.  Oh no-never!  Fresh guacamole-sour cream-salsa…..and, if I’m feeling it-maybe even some lettuce.

Of course, it’s that ‘building’ of the PERFECT quesadilla-that hubby and I both really enjoy!

I like to pile a little bit of everything on the top of each quesadilla, all pretty and dainty like.

Hubby on the other hand….not so much!!!

But whatever way you like your quesadilla-I guarantee you’re going to LOVE this quick and easy recipe!


And don’t forget to stop back tonight for The Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!  The party starts at 7 pm Eastern time!



Chicken Quesadillas


2 cups shredded chicken (I roast about 2 lbs of dark meat in the oven for about 35-40 minutes)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 pkg McCormick Southwest Chicken Quesadilla seasoning mix
2 tablespoons water (optional)
8 flour tortillas (8 inch)
Butter for frying tortilla (about 2 tablespoons)


Mix together- chicken, 1 1/2 cups of cheese, seasoning mix, tomatoes.  Add water if mixture is too dry.  Warm a large pan or griddle over medium heat.  Add butter and heat until sizzling.  Place one tortilla in pan.  Add chicken mixture.  Top with another tortilla.  Cook until lightly brown-and cheese is bubbling. Flip-and cook other side until lightly brown.  Remove from pan.  Sprinkle each quesadilla with remaining cheese, guacamole, salsa, tomatoes, lettuces, and sour cream.
