I’m back with more quesadillas…this time with a fun and ridiculously tasty Buffalo Chicken version. These are perfect finger foods for the upcoming “Big Game Day” – also known as Super Bowl 50!
I’ve taken all the amazing flavors of Buffalo Hot Wings and loaded them into tortillas.
Here’s how it looks…
Mix up the filling.
When you use rotisserie chicken, it just takes a few minutes to get this ready!
Little spicy pepper jack cheese onto tortilla.
Then the filling.
Add more cheese. Because, QUESAdilla. Queso means cheese in Spanish, so you need lots of cheese.
Add another tortilla on top.
Make “half-dillas” where you add cheese and filling to just half of the tortilla.
Then fold and cook in skillet.
Cook on both sides for a few minutes in dry skillet.
You can also bake them in the oven. (Learn more about how to do that here.)
I use my pizza cutter, makes it super easy.
Here’s the half-dilla, sliced.
Set out a bowl of blue cheese for dipping.
And enjoy these tasty quesadillas!
