Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla

Quesadillas are a great easy meal for dinners.  Check out the Breakfast Quesadilla that I previously posted.

My husband loves buffalo chicken and blue cheese so I thought I would put together a quesadilla that combines those flavors.  This was really good and a really easy weeknight meal, and it only contains a few ingredients.  This only takes a few minutes to make, which gives me more time with my family after work.  It is also great for any night that you are in a rush for dinner. 

While an easy dinner, this would also be a great idea for an appetizer at a New Year’s Eve party, or any other party.  You can cut the quesadilla into smaller pieces and serve, making it an easy effortless appetizer.  I know that we will be making these quesadillas again.

Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla

1 large tortilla
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1-2 ounces pre-cooked chicken strips
1 tablespoon buffalo wing sauce
2 tablespoons blue cheese dressing

1.  Cut the pre-cooked chicken into cubes and mix with the buffalo wing sauce until the chicken is well coated.

2.  Grease a skillet and and put over medium heat.  Put the tortilla in the skillet and cover the whole tortilla with cheese.  Add the chicken on one side of the tortilla and then add the blue cheese dressing on top of the chicken.

3.  Once the cheese begins to melt, fold the cheese only side over the chicken side of the tortilla.   Cook for 2 minutes then flip to the other side of the quesadilla.  Cook for another 2 minutes, each side should be browned and crispy.   Remove from heat. To serve cut the quesadilla into 3 pieces.
