Quick-make cheesy-ranch Quesadillas with with added zing: Pineapples!

Top Review by PeachyLia

Nice flavors and a good way to use up the small amount of leftover chicken in my refrigerator...I love pineapple and ham pizza so why not chicken and pineapple? I did add some salsa inside the quesadilla but there still wasn't as much flavor as I was hoping for. Used some more as a dipping sauce and that satisfied me. Wish I would have been able to garnish with chopped cilantro, but mine has been a victim of the extremely hot summer temps.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat frying pan with 1/4 cup olive oil, mixed with the pepper, salt, and onion powder.
  2. Thoroughly cook cubed chicken 7-8 minutes Add extra pinches of spices where you see fit.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare tortillas by adding a bed of sharp cheddar, followed by dollops of ranch in the center and around the edges. Add chopped pineapples to taste.
  4. When chicken is finished, add chicken to both tortilla set-ups. Then add more cheddar and and ranch (southwest ranch would be awesome here!) around the edges as a sealant. Place 3rd and 4th tortillas ontop to finish.
  5. Add quesadillas to same frying pan; do not clean off, taste from chicken cooking must remain. "Fry" on either side until cheese has melted. Cut into 4 squares and serve!
