Cast your vote for Chicken Quesadillas

If you're looking for a quick recipe that is really easy to make and has relatively few ingredients, look no further. This is a recipe I've been using for a while since living on my own and needing a quick meal.


  • 1 large soft quesadilla shell, usually near the bread isle
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded chicken, buy precooked or cook your own separately
  • 1/4 cup peppers, (optional)
  • 1/4 cup onions, (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle powder, sold in the spice isle
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. Warm the chicken in the microwave (assuming it is pre-cooked. If not, cook chicken separately).
  2. Pour the vegetable oil into the skillet and place it on a stove burner, on medium heat.
  3. When the skillet becomes warm, lay the quesadilla shell in, fully open
  4. Watch that it doesn't burn. When it begins to get light-tan on the bottom, sprinkle the cheese and chicken (and peppers/onions/Chipotle powder if used) onto one half of the shell.
  5. Fold the other half over.
  6. Flip the shell occasionally until both sides are light brown and crispy and the cheese is melted.
  7. When it is finished cooking, slice it into triangles and serve.
