BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

Yum

I realized something recently: I can put almost anything in a quesadilla and my kids will eat it. Two warm tortillas sandwiching melted cheese and whatever fillings they love, it's the perfect handheld food that they can eat in wedges for dinner, in their school lunch or even as a last minute snack.

We've been making so much Crock Pot BBQ Chicken lately that it seems like we've got leftovers of it in the fridge at all times. Never wanting to waste a morsel of food, I'll go to great lengths to reinvent dinners utilizing what we ate the night before in order to make something that's not recognized as just boring old leftovers. Quesadillas are a foolproof way to do that.

No matter whether you've got a bit of BBQ Chicken, Chicken in a Crock Pot or Slow Cooker Pulled Pork from the night before, quesadillas are a great way to use what you've got and make a meal your kids will totally dig.

    I just made these in a about 5 minutes, talk about a quick easy dinner! I used spinach wraps as that’s all I had, yet another delicious weeelicious meal!

    I’m gluten-free and eat EVERYTHING in white corn (and occasionally brown rice) tortillas. Unfortunately, my son can’t eat dairy so I have a bit of a harder time finding food that ‘sticks’ to the tortilla without the cheese. He had chicken and avocado today and it was a hit, but I’d love any other suggestions you might have! Thanks

      What about wrapping it instead of doing it as a quesadilla and then putting it on an indoor grill to help seal it?

      Have you tried vegan cheese? There are types of vegan cheese that melt just like real dairy cheese and it is perfect!

      amber, just wanted to suggest hummus or another bean dip/puree to make things stick :)

      Celery & Carrots with dip or even a coleslaw would be yummy with corn!
