Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

Grilled Chicken Quesadillas are great any time, but create them on your grill for an extra special treat.


1 12-ounce bottle salsa, divided
2 cups grilled, shredded chicken
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 9-inch flour tortillas
Olive oil
2 cups Monterey Jack shredded cheese

Note: You can also use mild shredded Cheddar cheese or a combination of Cheddar and Monterey Jack.


Mix 1/2 cup salsa with chicken, cilantro and salt in medium bowl.

Brush or spray one side of tortilla with oil. Lay on preheated grill, oiled side down. Spread tortilla with 1/3-cup chicken mixture; sprinkle with 1/3-cup cheese. Top with another tortilla and press together; brush top of tortilla with oil.

Grill, covered, three minutes or until the tortilla on the bottom begins to crisp and turn golden.

Carefully flip quesadilla and grill, covered, two minutes more or until cheese is melted and tortillas are crisp. Repeat five more times until all ingredients are used. Cut quesadillas into wedges; serve with remaining salsa.
