How To Make Chicken Quesadillas

A delicious and cheesy Mexican dish filled with seasoned chicken and melted cheese, served with salsa and sour cream.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 cup diced bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • Salsa and sour cream, for serving


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded chicken, cheddar cheese, onions, bell peppers, black olives, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.

  2. Lay a tortilla flat on a clean surface. Spread 1/4 of the chicken mixture evenly over half of the tortilla.

  3. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Press down gently.

  4. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and chicken mixture.

  5. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place a quesadilla in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla is golden brown and crispy, and the cheese inside is melted.

  6. Remove from the skillet and cut into wedges.

  7. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
