Ingredients

  • 4 large sheets rectangular tortillas wraps or flatbread (can be found in the deli section of many grocery stores).
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sweet yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 can green chiles
  • 3-4 cups rotisserie chicken meat cooked: shredded or cubed
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 cups Jalapeno Pepper cheese or Pepper Jack
  • Juice of 1 lime

Optional Toppings:

  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Avocado slices
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • Sour cream
  • Lime wedges
  • Salsa

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • Place two flatbreads or tortillas in the bottom of the pan, overlapping them a little in the middle. The tortillas should cover the entire pan.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the onions until they are translucent. Add the minced garlic and green chilies and cook an additional 30 seconds. Remove the mixture from the heat.
  • Sprinkle the chicken evenly over the tortillas in the pan.
  • Sprinkle the cheddar or Mexican cheese evenly over the chicken.
  • Dot the onion mixture over the cheese.
  • Sprinkle the Jalapeno Pepper cheese as the next layer.
  • Squeeze the juice of the lime over the top.
  • Place the two remaining flatbreads or tortillas on top and press down to secure the top tortillas in place.
  • Spray the top of the tortillas with cooking spray.
  • Cook tortillas on the middle rack of the oven, at 400°F, for 20-25 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp and cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately with toppings of your choice.
  • Enjoy!
  • *NOTE: You can also sprinkle a bit of cheese onto the quesadillas once done and broil until crisped as we did for photos.
