Spicy Chicken Quesadillas - My Goof Turned Good image

Simple, spicy and quick! Let me explain the title: I had bought ingredients for 2 different recipes and was making the quesadillas. As I dumped the second can of tomatoes with chiles into the mix, I realized they were for the other recipe! Ooops! Well, guess what? It turned out pretty good! :) As most of my recipes, don't make this if your family doesn't care for spicy food.

Categories     Chicken Breast

Time 15m

Yield 4 quesadillas, 4-8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 (10 ounce) can chicken breasts, strained and shredded
2 (10 ounce) cans tomatoes and green chilies (I prefer Rotel)
2 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
8 flour tortillas (burrito size)


  • Strain the tomatoes using a strainer. Make sure all liquid is out.
  • Mix shredded chicken, tomatoes, cheese, and onions.
  • Lay out 4 of the tortillas. Spread a thin even layer of the mix over the tortillas - making sure to cover the entire tortilla. Cover each with extra tortilla.
  • Using non-stick pan, lightly brown on both sides, making sure cheese melts.
  • Slice into 4-6 pieces and serve with sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo, salad --
  • We use this as a meal, but if you want to use it as appetizers, substitute the burrito-sized tortillas with 16 taco-sized. Spread the mixture over 8 of them and top with the other 8. Slice into 4 pieces.

So easy and quick to make! I love that I can use leftover chicken for this recipe. It's a great way to use up leftovers and make a delicious meal.

Meh, not bad but not great. The chicken was a bit dry and the cheese wasn't melted all the way through. I think I'll stick to my usual quesadilla recipe.

These quesadillas turned out amazing! The chicken was juicy and flavorful, and the cheese melted perfectly. I added some extra spice with a pinch of cayenne pepper, and it was the perfect kick. Definitely a new favorite recipe!
