Chicken Quesadillas

 picture coming soon

I love chicken quesadillas, but at home I always used to simply add chunks of chicken to cheese in a tortilla and, sorry, microwave it.  The sauce on this is quite tasty and the whole thing is a great way to use up leftover shredded chicken.

  • 1/2 C mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 C shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 C shredded cooked chicken

1.  Whisk together mayo, taco seasoning, garlic salt, and hot sauce.  Spread mixture on one side of each tortilla.  Sprinkle cheese over sauce on half of each tortilla, then top the cheese with chicken.  Fold the other half of the tortilla over the side with cheese and chicken.
2.  Heat in microwave for 20 seconds, then saute in a skillet over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side, until crispy but not blackened.

Robyn's notes: These can also be made with two full tortillas sandwiched over each other, of course, but I find quesadillas easier to flip when there's a fold on one side, so nothing can slide out that direction.

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
