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.
