Chicken Quesadilla

It’s been a very long time I’ve posted any recipes. I am really sorry about my sparse posting. My new year resolution is to be more active here and bring you lot more recipes from my kitchen. When I first came to U.S one of my first  favorite Mexican dish was Quesadilla. We just bought this quesadilla maker in the Thanksgiving shopping. Before that I used to bake this in a conventional oven but Quesadilla maker has made my life easier.  Try this easy Quesadilla recipe and let me know how it turned out.


  • Vegetable Oil : 2 tbsp
  • Onion: 1
  • Red Bell Pepper : 1
  • Green Bell Pepper: 1
  • Mushroom : 1 cup (Optional)
  • Chicken : 1 cup (Grilled or Cooked)
  • Salsa: 1 cup
  • Sour Cream : 3 tbsp (optional)
  • Cheddar or Mozarella Cheese : 2 cups
  • Tortilla : 2

Method Of Preparation:

  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add onion and sautee it for a few minutes.
  2. Now add both the peppers and mushroom(optional) with a little salt.
  3. Fry them till the peppers and mushroom becomes soft. Keep them aside.
  4. I’ve marinated the chicken with some oil and salsa and grilled it Or you can just boil the chicken and cut it into pieces and fry the chicken in a pan with some salsa (hot).
  5. Quesdilla-1

  6. Now if you have a Quesdilla maker just put the tortilla and sprinkle some cheese and on top of it add 2 tbsp of stuffing  we prepared before and spread 2 tbsp of salsa  and add the above prepared chicken (avoid chicken if you are making veggie Quesdilla) and again sprinkle some cheese, finally cover the stuffing with another tortilla.
  7. Quesdilla-4

  8. Close the maker and let it stand for 4-5 minutes and remove from pan serve hot with sour cream and Gaucamole.
  9. Quesdilla-3

  10. If you don’t have a Quesdilla maker just heat the tortilla in a pan with some butter on it and after that put the tortilla sandwich just like explained above in a 375 F preheated oven for 8-10 minutes and remove from oven cut it into a even sized slices.
