BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Quesadillas are a quick and easy meal.  You can stuff them with just about anything...which is especially convenient when you have some leftover meat or some veggies to use up.  I decided to go with a bbq chicken quesadilla this time around.  I made up some guacamole to go with it and served some black beans on the side.  I actually think next time I might add the black beans in the quesadilla!

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas {serves 4}

  • 2 roasted chicken breasts, shredded or cut into chunks
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups fresh corn, toasted in a saute pan
  • bbq sauce {any kind you like}
  • 4 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded {or any kind of cheese you like}
  • fresh cilantro, chopped
  • butter to grill quesadillas
To Garnish:
  • guacamole
  • sour cream

Have all of your ingredients ready to go so you can assemble and grill a couple at a time.  I really liked roasting the corn in a hot pan for a couple minutes just to get that toasty flavor out of the corn.  
Take a tortilla and butter one side.  Flip it over and sprinkle a layer of cheese on one half then top with some chicken, corn a couple tablespoons of bbq sauce, a little chopped cilantro, and another sprinkle of cheese.  Fold the tortilla in half and place on a hot griddle, grill, or saute pan and brown for 3 minutes.    Repeat with the remaining tortillas.  Flip quesadillas over to brown the other side.  Remove quesadillas from pan and cut in half or in thirds.  Serve some sour cream and guacamole along side.  Enjoy!
