Simply Delicious Ingredients

Chicken – Save time and use a rotisserie chicken, or leftover taco meat, or use fresh ground beef that’s been cooked and drained. Or, omit the meat altogether and use refried beans for a vegetarian version!

Vegetables – Be sure peppers and onions are thawed, and drained, if necessary. Feel free to toss in leftover veggies and cheese for a budget-friendly (and healthier!) dish.

Cheese – Loads of melty cheese are like the ‘glue’ that holds quesadillas together, so don’t skimp! For the best results, look for finely shredded Mexican cheese. Plain cheddar, Monterey Jack, Mozzarella, and Colby Jack are all great substitutions, too.

Tortillas – Larger tortillas take up more surface space, but you can use any size. If using corn tortillas, soften them in a little oil on low heat before using in Step 3.

Variations – Quesadillas have endless options! Any veggie combination works, it’s best to chop them in smaller pieces so the cheese can melt and hold everything together. Sliced black olives, jalapenos, green chiles, diced tomatoes, or a splash of salsa will add color and flavor!
