How to Make These Quesadillas

As I mentioned earlier, these quesadillas are super easy to prepare. All you basically have to do is combine all of the ingredients (the chicken filling) in a bowl first.

After that, you divide the filling between the tortillas; then top each tortilla with another tortilla before cooking. And that’s pretty much it. Told you it’s too easy…

Healthy Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas Ingredients

These quesadillas are healthy because they contain just chicken, a minimal amount of cheese, and a small amount of sour cream.

As for the tortillas; you can use whatever kind you prefer. I used a corn and flour blend tortilla for this recipe; and they were so tasty, but flour or corn tortillas would work as well.

All the ingredients that you will need to make these quesadillas include:

  • Cooked shredded chicken – a rotisserie chicken is perfect for this recipe or you can use your own prepared chicken
  • Tortillas – a flour or corn tortilla would work well
  • Sour cream – reduced fat options are available to keep these quesadillas on the healthy side
  • Chili powder – this one’s a given
  • A little salt

After baking in the oven for about 15 minutes, your quesadillas are ready! Have you tried this recipe? I would love to know how it worked out for you. Thank you.
