Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas
Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas are the perfect appetizer to make to watch any sporting game on TV. Are you getting excited for the Big Game next weekend? We are, although I know my hubby wishes his favorite team was playing, but I know we’ll enjoy watching the game together.
I love preparing something fun and yummy when we sit down to watch any sporting game, but especially for the Big Game, it’s always fun to take things up a notch and go all out on the appetizers.

How to Make Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas
Here’s all you need to make these yummy Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas: shredded chicken that you can use from a rotisserrie chicken or you can make your own chicken to shred. I like to make chicken in the crock pot and then shred it for recipes.
Lay the flour tortilla on a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper and start building your quesadillas. Start with the shredded chicken, then a few spoonfuls of Ricos Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce. Add Monterey Jack Cheese, chopped jalapeno peppers and then place another flour tortilla on top. Brush with oil and bake at 425 until golden brown.
- 4 10 inch flour tortillas
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 1 cup Ricos Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce.
- 1 cup grated Monterey Jack Cheese
- 1 jalapeno chopped finely
- 1 - 2 tablespoons oil
- Sour cream - for garnish
- Homemade salsa - for garnish
- Homemade guacamole - for garnish
Lay 2 flour tortillas flat on top of a baking sheet pan.
Add the chicken to the top of both flour tortillas.
Add the Ricos Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce on top of the chicken.
Sprinkle the grated Monterey Jack Cheese on top.
Sprinkle the chopped jalapeno peppers.
Top each tortilla with the other 2 flour tortillas and press gently.
Brush with a little bit of the oil.
Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the quesadilla is browned and the cheese is melted.
Remove from oven, let cool slightly before cutting into triangle wedges.
Serve with homemade salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
