Mr. Food: Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas

Whether you've got friends coming over to watch a game, or you're just looking for an easy lunch or snack, these Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas are a real winner. Buffalo chicken makes for a tasty addition inside these cheesy quesadillas, and the celery adds a nice a crunch!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup chopped frozen buffalo chicken strips, cooked according to package directions, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery, divided
  • 2 (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Blue cheese dressing (optional)

What to Do

 

  • Sprinkle 3/4 cup of cheese, 1/2 cup of chicken, and 1/4 cup of celery evenly over one half of one tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
  • In a large skillet or griddle over medium heat, melt butter.
  • Place one tortilla, toppings side up, on skillet and cook 30 seconds, or until cheese begins to melt. Using a spatula, fold the tortilla over in half and cook 1 to 2 more minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted. Flip and cook an additional 30 seconds, or until both sides are golden brown. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
  • Slice each tortilla into four wedges and serve with blue cheese dressing, if desired.
