We are a quesadilla family for sure. This chicken quesadilla recipe is so good and so simple. There’s nothing more that I love than a hot buttery crisp quesadilla right off of the skillet. I have developed a Southwest style quesadilla with some of my favorite ingredients. I prepared a salsa verde shredded chicken that’s layered with 3 cheeses and black beans stuffed inside buttery tortillas.

Tips For Making Quesadillas
- I like to use a non-stick skillet.
- Butter the skillet for each quesadilla for a crispy tortilla.
- Use different cheeses for variety.
- Add roasted vegetables to your quesadilla for more variations.
- Try chicken, steak and shrimp too.
