Chicken Quesadillas Recipe


  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus extra as needed
  • 1 small bell pepper red or green
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken shredded or cubed
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning or fajita seasoning
  • 2 cups monterey jack cheese or mexican blend, shredded


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook onions 2-3 minutes or until softened. Add bell peppers and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken, seasoning and 1/4 cup water. Simmer 3-4 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  3. Lay out the tortillas and sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese on one half of the tortilla. Add 1/4 of the chicken mixture. Fold half of the tortilla over the filling. Brush the outside of each tortilla with olive oil.

  5. Cool 2-3 minutes and cut each tortilla into 3 pieces.
