Tex-Mex Quesadillas

This recipe comes from the Novice Chef blog. These quesadillas are some of the best Ive ever ate. My brother even said they tasted better than Taco Bell’s quesadillas! The cilantro and lime juice give this a fresh pop of flavor. Delish!


1 pkg perdue carved chicken breast- I used 3 big boneless skinless chicken breasts

6 tortillas

1 tbsp butter

1 cup shredded mexican cheese- I used Weight Watchers

fresh cilantro

1 garlic clove, finely minced

1 lime

1 onion, diced

salt & pepper

I also used a few dashes of hot sauce

Sour cream and pico de gallo for garnish


Melt butter in skillet. Saute onions until they begin getting soft. Add in chicken, garlic, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Cook about 5 mins.

Heat another large skillet. Spray with nonstick spray. Lay down one tortilla. Top with some of the cheese, chicken mixture, lime juice, and cilantro leaves. Sprinkle with a little more cheese and top with second tortilla. Cook about 2 mins per side or until cheese is melted. Slice into 6 triangles and garnish with sour cream and pico de gallo.

* I wanted to take a pic of the inside of the quesadillas but got excited and forgot, sorry!

    Glad you enjoyed them! If you want some extra spice, next time if you have them add some Jalapeno! If you sautee the jalapeno along with onions it will give them a great spicy flavor! 🙂

    They are one of my favorite easy dinners…and your picture is making me want to have them again real soon!
