Chicken Barbecue Quesadillas

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

These mini quesadillas are best enjoyed while they're still warm. Don't forget a bowl of guacamole and a serving spoon so your guests can dip in style.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the chicken, barbecue sauce, and onion together in a small saucepan until warmed through.
  2. Meanwhile, have your kids use 2 1/2- or 3-inch cookie cutters to cut the tortillas into pairs of matching shapes (ideally, you'll end up with 12 to 16 pairs).
  3. Place one of each pair of shapes on your work surface and sprinkle cheese on them.
  4. Add a tablespoon of the chicken mixture and a little more cheese, then top with the matching tortilla shapes.
  5. Right before serving, place the assembled tortillas, a few at a time, on a warmed griddle and cook over moderate heat for 2 minutes on each side.
  6. As you cook them, transfer the tortillas to a baking sheet kept in a warm oven until the whole batch is done. Serve at once.

How can you go wrong with barbecued chicken and cheese? I used jalapeno slices instead of onions. I can hardly believe I never tried this combination before. Thanks for posting!
