BBQ Chicken Chile Quesadilla

BBQ Chicken Chile Quesadilla

These cheese chicken quesadillas are definitely a crowd favorite. They are filled with cheese, chicken, BBQ sauce, and green chiles.

 
Whenever I am in a rush for dinner and need something quick this recipe is where I turn! I usually have leftover shredded chicken in the fridge for days just like this
 

Yum! That is all I can say! This is the perfect week-night dinner. It is something different then the regular ol’ quesadillas. They are family friendly, but can also be spiced up for the men out there! These were a hit for my 5 year old and my husband!

 
If you like these quesadillas you will also love my Jalapeño popper flautas, beef taquitos, or bean and cheese burrito enchilada style.
 
 

Jazzed up quesadilla

 
Quesadillas don’t have to be boring. Jazz them up by adding this bbq chicken and green chiles to take this to a whole new level.
 
These can also be eaten and served as an appetizer.
