This is an easy way to serve up a quick dinner with a lot of flavor! No need to use oil or butter to toast each side of the quesadilla, but you can if you'd like. I prefer a dry heat. Tortillas made with a corn-flour mixture work best. Serve with either Buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, or sour cream!

Directions

  • Place chicken tenders into a medium-sized pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce temperature to medium-low and simmer until chicken tenders are cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain chicken tenders. Transfer to a cutting board and cut or shred as desired.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook shallot until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine cream cheese, ranch dressing, Buffalo sauce, and cooked shallots in a bowl; mix until creamy. Add cooked chicken and season with salt and pepper.

  • Spread Buffalo chicken mixture onto a tortilla and top with Colby-Monterey Jack cheese and Gouda cheese. Cover with a second tortilla and set quesadilla aside. Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken mixture, and cheese.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 quesadilla and cook until browned on 1 side, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until tortilla is crisp and cheese is melted, about 3 more minutes. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.

The entire family really liked this. I accidentally left out the cream cheese and am now quite glad as it would have made the chicken mixture even milder than it is and I was looking for a little spice. I used about double the cheese as well to satisfy the pickier eaters in the house. Read More
