Chicken Verde Quesadillas


As a busy mom of two little ones, I’m always on the look-out for quick/easy/yummy recipes. Here’s a simple chicken verde quesadilla recipe that I tried for the first time tonight.


1 lb. cooked and sliced chicken breast or thigh

1 jar of green chiles

1 package of shredded pepper jack cheese

10-12 flour tortillas


1) Melt butter in pan over high heat. Place a tortilla onto the hot pan.

2) Place shredded cheese onto tortilla. Then top with chicken and green chiles.

3) Fold the tortilla in half when the bottom of the tortilla is browned. The quesadilla is ready when the cheese is gooey and melted and the tortilla is brown and crisp.

4) Serve and enjoy with your favorite Mexican toppings. I love to put sour cream, salsa, and guacamole on my quesadillas!
